The document contains four sections. In the first two, it presents the Guidelines’ purpose and main frame of reference on which it is based, with regard to international laws but also in terms of the IBCR’s vision and values. The third section broaches the definition of the right to participate, as well as the various forms this participation could take. The fourth section is the core of the document. It describes the components to integrate participation into a project’s cycle. For each component, a series of questions is proposed to help inform decisions about child participation opportunities and choices about how this right will be taken into account during the project.
Some useful tools are also proposed in appendix.
