The chapter discusses the pressing need for greater investment in social security schemes internationally and in particular for children. It sets out the consequences of poverty and deprivation for children and the importance and potential of using children's rights as a framework for measurement, analysis and policy design. It highlights the responsibilities of international actors to resource social security, and details how a tax on currency transfers could be harnessed to provide an international child benefit.
