If states fail to protect children,is there not a place for NGO intervention
The rise of non-state actors to take the roles of nation states has been a transforming aspect in recent decades. Although such a rise has created challenges such as crises of authority, it has also offered opportunities for the non-state actors to participate in development of better societies. In this paper, the following questions will be considered:
1. If states fail to protect children,ids there not a place for NGO intervention?
2. Children and their rights are hardly the focus of miost international relations discussions. How do NGOs bring these concerns to our attention?
3. As the agenda of international relations shifts to human security issues,or freedom from fear and freedom from want, how important will nonstate actors be in the future?
