Monitoring Child Socio-Economic Rights in South Africa
Achievements and Challenges
This study evaluates qualitatively the government’s programming and budgeting for children rights to basic nutrition, health services, social services and education thus far, measured against the legal obligations to realise these rights as set out in the constitution. It additionally provides valuable data disaggregating resources expended on children as a proportion of the overall budget. Further concerns are popular participation in realising children’s rights, children’s own perceptions of government efforts, and the legal instruments to enforce children’s unqualified constitutional socio-economic rights.
