Child Rights: through Covid and into recovery - new and changing norms
REJUVENATE is a project led by a team at IDS and UHI that seeks to re-energise the field of child and youth rights in social justice processes, through a growing network of child rights actors.

As part of our project, we are hosting a series of Grounded Dialogues. The first dialogue, held in September, responded and reflected on the Rejuvenate principles, and can be rewatched here. We are excited to announce the second dialogue in the series, taking place 12th January 12:00 - 13:30 GMT. We will be joined in an interactive session by practitioners and thinkers in the fields of child rights, and children and youth participation, who will talk about their work in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. We will be considering and discussing the experiences of living and working with children and youth (in a variety of contexts) through the pandemic, during recovery, and in entering the ‘new normal’. Has the pandemic allowed for more participation in important spaces by children and youth? Or have those spaces become less participatory with digital, financial, and geographical divides?

As articulated in our working paper, we intend for this dialogue and future dialogues to be part of an ‘inclusive process of contributing to and building up international dialogue about children’s and youth participation and creating regional networks to share learning on concepts, rights, and goals’ and to be a ‘springboard for further work that substantively recognises the importance of children’s participation in work to further child rights, and to enrich and rejuvenate the societies of which children are a part.’

On 12th January we will be joined by:
• Jannatun Nayem, Documenter on the CLARISSA programme for Terre des Homme Foundation
• Subekhchhya Buda Magar, youth researcher, CLARISSA programme
• Professor Linda Theron, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Pretoria
• Hilde Deman, Global Programme Manager, Search for Common Ground
