While the Consultations described in this document acknowledged the importance, and overlap, of each of these elements, an emphasis was placed on the right to play as it is one of the least known, least understood, least recognised rights of children and consequently one of the most consistently ignored, undervalued and violated of children’s rights in the world today. Working with regional and national partners, the International Play Association identified eight Consultation sites worldwide: Bangkok, Beirut, Johannesburg,Mexico City, Mumbai, Nairobi, Sofia and Tokyo. Following a careful planning and preparation process, consultations were held in these cities between January and June 2010.||Funding Details:||Bernard van Leer Foundation||Type of material:||Book||Publisher:||International Play Association||Keywords:||United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child; International Play Association; Play; Human rights||DOI:||10.13140/2.1.4898.4644||Other versions:||https://ipaworld.org/summary-report-from-the-ipa-global-consultations-on-childrens-right-to-play/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISBN:||978-0-9549164-5-9||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
