Policy reports, research and briefings


We use expert evidence and research to create lasting change. We influence governments and international agencies to create policies and practice for girls and adolescent youth that tackle gender discrimination and improve rights for children and young people.

Advancing children’s rights and equality for girls is a complex process which requires complex solutions. We work across a number of key themes to help create long lasting change.

We work closely with policymakers, parliamentarians and civil society networks such as Girls Not Brides, Global Campaign for Education, Countdown 2030 Europe and Action for Global Health. Read some of our publications below.
