Project Fortitude: Improving children's legal capability

Project description

Game-based resources to empower children

Children need to be heard, especially when they are in danger. Despite the existence of international regulations and domestic legislation protecting children, millions worldwide live at risk of violence, negligence or abuse. They need to be empowered and enabled to enforce their legal rights independently. The EU-funded project FORTITUDE will conduct ground-breaking research to develop children’s legal capability. It will work with children to develop resources that enable them to deal effectively with legal issues. The project will also facilitate children's independent access to support and safety thanks to a range of game-based interventions designed in a child-centred framework. Ultimately, FORTITUDE aims to boost the legal capability of children internationally.
