Special Issue on Street-Connected Children
Focus of this Training
It has now been over half a decade since the rights of street-connected children were formally and explicitly recognized by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in its General Comment No. 21 (2017) on children in street situations. While incremental steps have been taken since its adoption, little has improved for these vulnerable children. A special issue on street-connected children published in the journal Child Abuse & Neglect aims to cast light on the current situation of these children in a range of countries. This publication serves as an important platform for discussion on the challenges faced by street-connected children and how we can effectively respond to these issues.
