Child protection systems need to be effectively integrated into systemic approaches for the implementation of the Convention. There are many areas that are essential for prevention, empowerment and building resilience that cannot be addressed by a child protection approach alone.
On the basis of this assumption, it was a central objective of IMPACT to test the hypothesis that strengthening the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child will contribute to preventing child exploitation and trafficking and protecting children at risk. The objective was to understand the correlations between the status and quality of implementation and the vulnerability of children to exploitation and trafficking.
The intent of this session is to underline that each protective intervention should be developed with the awareness that each social context can either facilitate or encumber it.
Once clarified that the dimensions involved are different (quantitative, qualitative, mediation, coordination, legislative and economic), the session specifies that every intervention centred on the child should consider thoroughly all these dimensions, with the final aim of undertaking a successful intervention notwithstanding the adverse imposed conditions.
Total time required 4 – 4,5 hours
A. Introduction – 20 minutes
Introduction to session agenda, objectives and expectations along with the presentation of the session assumptions related to the systemic dimension shaping the effectiveness of actions and strategies using as background material the information included in the concluding Chapter of the IMPACT Report 2013. The facilitator should place a particular emphasis on the systemic dimension influencing and identifying the opportunity to carry out effective actions and strategies. The facilitator here should integrate some practical example to clarify what this ‘systemic dimension’ means in practice and could be operationally used
