This report presents the findings of a participatory research project with a Youth Advisory Panel in Ireland designed to better understand children’s knowledge of their own rights, identify gaps in their knowledge and skills, and to develop recommendations that will help to address those gaps in CRE through policy
and practice. The project was commissioned by the Children’s Rights Alliance and undertaken by researchers from the School of Education, University College Dublin.
