Social Policies

With regard to the obligation of states to ensure the progressive realization of rights, and to provide resources for children “to the maximum extent possible” (Article 4 of the CRC), the outcome document of the Quito consultation on the human rights-based approach to programming (HRBAP) indicates that UNICEF’s attention should not be limited to social sector spending (including national budgets, allocations within the social expenditure envelope, etc), but should look at the broader picture (e.g. tax policy and tax burden, budget allocations among sectors, public debt, etc). The aim is to influence the budgeting and policy-making process so that government budgets and policies realize children’s rights; to influence the social content of economic and fiscal policy; to engender social mobilization, consensus, inclusiveness and participation; and to monitor public expenditure and governance.
