This policy brief for national and local governments contains key findings of the Lumos Global Thematic Review and a summary of conclusions and recommendations.
Governments have a duty to protect children’s right to live with their families: this right is protected in a number of international treaties including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
There is widespread recognition that children have the right to both grow up in a family and to have a quality education that meets their needs. However, in recent years, Lumos’s programmatic work has highlighted that children’s rights to family life and education can sometimes be seen as contradictory or even mutually exclusive. We have also seen that innovative, practical and policy-based interventions can enable all children to fully enjoy both rights.
