Children’s participation in policy matters

ByHelen Roberts

Children can be used to sell political messages or trainers, they can be used by terrorists in battles or wars, they can be used in propaganda by the good guys as well as the bad. They are frequently on the receiving end of a whole range of policies intended for their protection and the protection of family life. Children are important users, important consumers, important barometers and can provide impressive leverage in the purchasing decisions of households.
