Abstract: The Committee of the Convention on the Rights of the Child held a general discussion in Geneva on 17 September devoted to the topic ‘Implementing Child Rights in Early Childhood’. The Bernard van Leer Foundation was involved in the organisation of the event, and it invited four of its counterparts to join in the meeting. Beforehand, the Foundation asked the counterparts to reply to a questionnaire to reflect on a meeting workshop on the subject ‘Young children as actors in their own development’. Edited summaries of the replies are presented below.
