Circle of Rights: Summary Document

Intentional Planning for Social Change

An overview of IICRD's Circle of Rights: Intentional Planning for Social Change (formerly Triple A) Methodology: an iterative, child-centred, and participatory action research and intentional planning process supporting positive social change for children, families and communities. This reflective methodology, which starts from children’s perspectives, helps community stakeholders, agencies and policymakers to develop integrated, inter-sectoral, child rights policy, programming and monitoring systems that build from local strengths and wisdom in meeting challenges facing children, their peers, families and communities.  The Circle of Rights has four stages - Map, Engage, Plan and Create.
