Rapid Review on Inclusion and Gender Equality in Central and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia


The aim of this Rapid Review is to provide an overview of the main child rights violations and equity gaps in the realisation of rights that currently affect these specific groups of children:

  • children with disabilities
  • children affected by migration
  • children from ethnic and linguistic minorities.
Furthermore, it looks at gender-related inequalities that affect girls and boys across the CEE/CIS region.

It describes the key barriers and bottlenecks that currently determine the observed rights violations and equity gaps for these particular groups of children and identifies their impact on the key strategic result areas of the UNICEF CEE/CIS Regional Knowledge and Leadership Agenda (RKLA).
