humanitarian and transition contexts. Ideally these tools should help map out who the key stakeholders are (both duty bearers and rights holders), analyse the relative capacities and gaps of each group, and identify concrete actions needed to build the capacity of actors to ensure child rights are realized. These different tools are informed by a common set of questions including: 1. What is the particular child rights issue we want to address? (i.e. the forced recruitment of children into armed forces in a given region within a country) 2. Who are all the relevant actors/stakeholders (international, national and local) involved that can significantly influence or are affected by the right violation? (i.e. which are the institutions, groups and individuals who may influence the forced recruitment of children, in a positive or negative way?). 3. What are individual stakeholder attributes – that is their characteristics (typology or nature of the actor/organization); interests/needs (what interest do they have in relation to the rights violation and how does this influence their conduct?), position (what are the relationships among the various actors and in relation to protecting children’s rights?) and capacities (what 14

DRAFT – Toolkit on Child Rights in Humanitarian Crises and Post-Crisis Transition, July 2012 resources do actors have to influence child rights violations, either positively or negatively? For example, do de facto authorities have the power to influence a situation and ensure children in their area of influence are not recruited, or that recruited children are released?). 4. What are the relationships among stakeholders and with other entities? (i.e. can donors influence governments to halt the recruitment of child soldiers?) 5. What are the potential drivers of change and/or possible incentives to influence key stakeholders and what are possible opportunities to act? (i.e. what incentives might convince non-state armed actors not to recruit child soldiers?). d. Capacity and Will Analysis Once key duty bearers are identified, a capacity and will analysis helps to identify whether they can meet their responsibilities to children and, if not, what inputs it would need to allow it to achieve this. Many times governments simply do not have the resources to address the range of rights issues facing children in the time of crisis and will need assistance to boost their ability to respond or other organizations will need to provide the necessary services. Capacity analysis can and should be conducted on several occasions across the course of preparedness, humanitarian action and transition response. It can be applied to a range of stakeholders, including non-state actors. The checklist below presents a set of questions that can be included in a capacity and will analysis.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
