The Legal Atlas for Street Children
Putting street children on the map.
Street children are one of the world’s most invisible populations. They are often overlooked by policymakers and the general public. This project aims to put street children on the map so that every child is treated fairly and with respect.
Using the United Nations’ guidance, the Legal Atlas can help us to identify where laws and policies can be created or improved. This is the first step towards making real change in the everyday lives of street children.
The ‘Legal Atlas for Street Children’ tool has been compiled by Baker McKenzie LLP and its partners and reviewed by the Consortium for Street Children.
This part of the website will highlight the areas where Governments can do more to ensure street children can not only meet their basic needs to survive, but can develop to their fullest potential.
