Understanding What Shapes Child Well-being in Rich Countries

image of Worlds of Influence


For the last 20 years, the Innocenti Report Card series has led the way in comparing children’s well-being across rich countries. Report Card 16 develops this further through a multi-level approach to show that children’s well-being is influenced by children’s own actions and relationships, by the networks and resources of their caregivers, and by public policies and the national context. This approach is aligned with the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, in that it recognizes the responsibilities of governments, families and communities to help realize children’s rights and promote their well-being.
