Various media attention for the KidsRights Index 2017

The KidsRights Index 2017, published on May 15th by the KidsRights Foundation, has received a lot of national and international media attention. The KidsRights Index is an initiative of the KidsRights Foundation, in cooperation with Erasmus University Rotterdam: Erasmus School of Economics and the International Institute of Social Studies.

It is a ranking of all states that have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child for which sufficient data is available, a total of 165 countries in 2017. The Index pools data from two reputable sources: quantitative data published and regularly updated by UNICEF at www.data.unicef.org and qualitative data published by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in its Concluding Observations for all states that are legally bound by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
