TransMonEE: 30 years of monitoring child rights and inequities

1-2  Nov 2022,


Taking stock and growing stronger towards a comprehensive child rights monitoring framework

Background on TransMonEE

TransMonEE is a three-decade-old regional partnership initiative among the National Statistics Offices (NSOs). It aims to strengthen the coverage, quality, disaggregation, accessibility, and use of data on children, across a breadth of areas relevant to children’s rights and wellbeing, aligned with the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The TransMonEE partnership seeks to enhance the generation, comparability, systematization, and integration of statistics and indicators on childhood and adolescence in Europe and Central Asia, as they are instrumental to improving the planning, implementation, and evaluation of policies and programmes for children and adolescents.

Objective of the 2022 TransMonEE Meeting

After a pause of three years, following the successful 2019 TransMonEE meeting, this year’s TransMonEE meeting will seek:

  • to review the recently adopted Guidance of the Conference of European Statisticians for improving statistics on selected vulnerable groups of children.
  • to take stock of the application of the new list of minimum child protection indicators in the region and specifically explore good practices related to the generation of statistics on children in alternative care,
  • to discuss and reach a broad consensus on a regional monitoring framework for child rights with its key domains, sub-domains, and indicators and the adjustments needed in the post-COVID period to capture the realization of child rights and challenges children face in today’s world.
