This Foundation Report is the first in a Special Report Series addressing the well-being of children and youth in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Report corresponds with three key UNESCO aims: to strengthen awareness of human rights; to act as a catalyst for regional and national action in human rights; and to foster co-operation with a range of stakeholders and networks working with, or on behalf of, children and youth.

This Foundation Report, whilst focusing on Ireland and Northern Ireland, reflects the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) position that rights and well-being are a global concern and the extent to which they are realised affects the lives of all children and young people.

The Report integrates the position of UNESCO on rights and well-being2 into current thinking and practice in Ireland and Northern Ireland in responding to the lessons of the past and shaping a society where a happy childhood is a norm and not an aspiration. The specific purpose of the Report is to contribute to a shared understanding of a human rights-based approach to monitoring children and young people’s well-being.
