Establishing a child rights impact assessment (CRIA) requires making strategic choices as regards scope and process. This article focuses on choices regarding (i) the material scope: for which documents will a CRIA be carried out?; (ii) the personal scope: will a CRIA be done only for children (0-18 years), or be extended towards young adults?; and (iii) the relationship to other instruments and processes: will a CRIA stand alone, or be integrated with other impact assessments? The relation between CRIA and other instruments such as child (friendly) budgeting is also discussed. The article illustrates these choices drawing on an evaluation of the experience of implementing the Child and Youth Impact Report (JoKER) in Flanders (Belgium).
