This short report summarises speakers' presentations and the key issues raised at the Governance Fit For Children seminar held on 28 June 2011 in Edinburgh.

It was one of a series of events held across the UK, following the recent publication of European-wide research by Save the Children.

The 'Governance Fit For Children' reports assess how far the General Measures of Implementation for the UNCRC have been realised in five European countries; including the UK.

The seminar events aimed to stimulate greater dialogue around the General Measures of Implementation and to identify priorities for future action by the UK and devolved governments.
