South African Child Gauge 2018

The 2018 issue of the South African Child Gauge focuses on children in relation to families and the state. The publication covers crucial topics such as recent legislative developments affecting the lives and rights of children; provides essays motivating for targeted and responsive policies, programmes and services that take into account the realities of South African families and support them to provide care and nurture their children’s development; and provides updates on a set of key data indicators on children’s socio-economic rights with commentary on the extent to which they have been realised.

The South African Child Gauge is an annual publication that monitors progress towards the realisation of children’s rights and is published by the Children’s Institute, University of Cape Town.
