The Lundy model of child participation

The Lundy model

by Laura Lundy

This model was developed by academic Laura Lundy, Professor of international children's rights at the School of Education at the Queen's University of Belfast.1 Her model provides a way of conceptualising a child's right to participation, as laid down in Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.2 It is intended to focus decision-makers on the distinct, albeit interrelated, elements of the provision.
