A more sophisticated approach to determining if someone’s rights have been violated would therefore involve working through a structured series of considerations. One consideration concerns what rights are recognised; if something is not recognised as a right in the first place it makes no sense to ask whether or not it has been violated. It is important, therefore, to be clear about three things. First, do socioeconomic and civil-political rights count? Some international treaties, for example the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), contain only civil-political rights such as freedom of speech and respect for privacy.
The major advantage of this approach is its theoretical underpinning; while the focus is on the basic needs and 26 Need thus actual harm or impairment, by gathering evidence on intermediate needs it helps with measuring likely impairment to physical health or autonomy. It also demonstrates that distinguishing between degrees of need-satisfaction can be relatively straightforward. A further approach to capturing normative need is represented by the audits of children conducted by numerous children’s services agencies in the UK and abroad using the practice tools Matching Needs and Services (Little et al, 1999) and Aggregating Data (Little et al, 2002).
A similar child need index has also been used as part of the formula for determining how central government in the UK allocates funding to local authorities (Carr-Hill et al, 1997). It comprises four risk factors associated with relatively intensive interventions or being at risk of maltreatment: lone-parent household, rented accommodation, household receiving basic social assistance, and household with priority housing need. At a more local level, Brown and Smith (1997) measured child need in an English county using factors connected with children who were separated from their families.
