Save the Children and MIET AFRICA have joined forces to advocate for stronger child-sensitive governance processes and systems across the Eastern and Southern African (ESA) region, including inclusive, child-sensitive, democratic election processes. This advocacy brief provides an overview of the rights and responsibilities of children and state parties in securing the meaningful participation of children in election proceedings. It makes recommendations for developing child-friendly election proceedings in the ESA region, drawing on relevant legal instruments, literature and stakeholder views from 2017 research in Zambia and Tanzania on children’s civil and political rights.
