Abstract

International child welfare organisations are taking on some of the management characteristics of the commercial sector as a result of pressures to be more accountable. This process has been accelerated by the demand for monitoring implicit in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. This paper discusses the effects of this process on UNICEF and international NGOs. It suggests that the goals of the Convention cannot be encompassed entirely using such management strategies, though increasing professionalisation of the 'child business' may bring benefits for children.
