This chapter contextualises the role played by National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and their functional equivalents (such as ombudsmen) in the reporting process on children’s rights. As Ineke Boerifijn notes, NHRIs play a crucial role in the implementation of human rights at the domestic level. They bring a child-oriented focus to what were previously exclusively adult governance systems.
