Intersectional discrimination against children: discrimination against romani children and anti-discrimination measures to address child trafficking

©UNICEF IRC - Innocenti Working Paper cover page

This paper adds a perspective to existing research on child protection by engaging in a debate on intersectional discrimination and its relationship to child protection. The paper has a two-fold objective, (1) to further establish intersectionality as a concept to address discrimination against children, and (2) to illustrate the importance of addressing intersectionality within rights-based programmes of child protection.
