Since the ratification of the convention in Ireland in 1992 the Irish government has sought to provide structural (such as the establishment of the Ombudsman for Children, and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs) and policy measures to ensure children’s rights are embedded, practised and realised. These policy measures include the National Children’s Strategy (2000), Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures: The national policy framework for children and young people (2014–2020) and the National Strategy on Children and Young People’s Participation in Decision-Making (2015–2020).||Type of material:||Government Publication||Publisher:||Department of Children and Youth Affairs||Keywords:||Children's rights; Comhairle na nÓg (child youth council); Ireland; Government policy||Other versions:||https://www.dcya.gov.ie/docs/EN/Publications-copy-dcya-gov-ie-2019/200/4225.htm||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
