what is a system
What is a system?
  • In practice, the various uses of the term ‘system’ ranges from the narrow and specific, such as the operating system of a computer or a car, to the broad and more loosely defined, such as a country’s `social system’. A specific type of system for a machine might have clearly visible parts and connections, whereas a broader social system includes both the formal structures of government (from the national level down to the community) and informal relationships between individuals and between organizations – along with cultural values, norms, beliefs and practices. Defining a system partly depends on the context because it is used to refer to different structures; for example, a transport system, a social system or a management system.
what is a child protection system
What is a child protection system
  • “a set of laws, policies, regulations and services, capacities, monitoring, and oversight needed across all social sectors – especially social welfare, education, health, security, and justice – to prevent and respond to protection related risks.”
why the need for cp systems
Why the need for CP Systems?
  • a dissatisfaction with the impact of fragmented approaches – particularly expressed by larger child protection agencies such as UNHCR, UNICEF and Save the Children, which address a range of interconnected issues in their work and operate in both emergency and development settings;
  • • concerns over undermining existing traditional or state protection mechanisms;
  • • and a growing understanding of children’s experiences – which often indicate a range of interconnected protection failures.
what are the main components of a child protection system
What are the main components of a child protection system?
  • A mix of institutions, frameworks processes and behaviours / attitudes –
  • 1. Legal and policy framework including regulations and standards compliant with the CRC, other international standards and good practice.
  • 2. Effective regulation and oversight to ensure standards are upheld at all levels. Some argue that this component necessitates the existence of a specific agency or ombudsperson dedicated to child protection and / or child welfare, with the mandate, means, authority and responsibility to ensure the overall working of the system.

challenges of a child protection system
Challenges of a child protection system
  • Systems approach is still new and so more learning is needed.
  • Risk of diminished response for the children who are the most vulnerable – if systems building id prioritized before pressing child protection needs are addressed
  • Investment in government capacity can easily be misjudged.
  • Capacity and commitment at community level may be uneven.
