This chapter examines the extent to which a human rights approach offers a framework to increase accountability for the policies that perpetuate child impoverishment. In doing so, it considers some of the practical limitations to this framework with specific reference to the issues of ‘justiciability’ and ‘progressive realisation’. Finally, it explores how social scientists may utilise human rights frameworks in poverty research, as well as the methodological issues that arise from this approach.
