This Assessment Tool provides specific and measurable indicators with which States can begin to measure progress in implementing Recommendation CM/Rec(2012)2 of the Committee of Ministers to member States on the participation of children and young people under the age of 18.

The Tool will enable States to: raise awareness and understanding of children’s right to participation; undertake a baseline assessment of current implementation; help identify measures needed to achieve further compliance; highlight and share good practice; measure progress over time.
