The book Childhood Matters (Qvortrup et al. 1994), derived from this project, described part of the project’s aim: ‘to provide children and childhood with conceptual autonomy’ and ‘to give a voice to children’ as subjects in research (p. xi). This project drew attention to the idea that children are a particular population group, deserving of policy attention separate from families. Writers within the new sociology of childhood emphasised that children’s lives and cultures are deserving of special study (James and Prout 1990) and that central to this process is recognising the child as a being rather than (or as) a becoming, as active rather than as passive and as subject rather than object of policy (James and Prout 1990).

The OECD report distinguishes the child rights perspective from the developmentalist perspective in defining the former as having ‘a strong rights-based emphasis on children as human beings who experience well-being in the here-and-now’ and seeking children’s input in the process of deciding what their well-being might be and how it might be best measured (p. 25). The report cites work by Ben-Arieh and Frønes (2007) and Casas (1997). A turning point in the move from the developmentalist perspective to what the OECD report referred to as the child rights perspective was the Multi-National Project for Monitoring and Measuring Children’s Well-Being.
