Innocenti Social Monitor 2009: Child Well-Being at a Crossroads:

Innocenti Social Monitor 2009: Child Well Being At A Crossroads:: Evolving Challenges In Central And Eastern Europe And The Commonwealth Of Independent States


After almost two decades of transition, the CEE/CIS region continues to be a region in a state of change. Following a long period of steady economic growth and gradual improvements in average living standards, the global crisis is threatening to reverse some of these achievements and plunge the region into another period of uncertainty for the well-being of families and children.The Innocenti Social Monitor 2009 uses available data to identify critical economic and social trends and assess the impact of policies on children in the period of growth immediately preceding the current crisis. It also looks at changes in the context in which children are growing up: the character of economic growth, widening inequalities, striking demographic trends, as well as public expenditure levels and structures, all of which influence policy choices that affect children.While acknowledging the considerable benefits which this period brought to children in the region, the report also highlights persistent inequalities in the distribution of the benefits of growth and argues that children did not benefit as much as the rest of the population during this period. This was partly due to the failure of policy to reach out to those groups of the child population most at risk and to provide adequate policy support and resources to reduce inequalities and the risk of social exclusion.By providing a comprehensive overview of the decade up to 2008, the report aims to help support and guide policy debate and decisions in a period of economic crisis and encourages policy makers to be more child-centred, to give greater consideration to identifying and supporting those children most in need, to promote social inclusion and to give each child the opportunity to develop to his or her full potential.
