The KidsRights Index is the annual global index published by the KidsRights Foundation, which ranks how countries adhere to and are equipped to improve children's rights. The KidsRights Index is an initiative of the KidsRights Foundation, in cooperation with Erasmus University Rotterdam. It comprises a ranking of all UN member states that have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and for which sufficient data is available, a total of 165 countries. The KidsRights Index has been developed to stimulate public opinion and public debate concerning the adhering of children's rights. It is a tool for governments, civil society and other stakeholders for taking action to improve children's rights.
For this year's Index, the UK has moved to 156th place compared to 11th place previously.
