Social protection, including social transfers and social services for the most vulnerable and marginalized, is gaining momentum as a development priority. This paper aims to explore two specific issues: What efforts are underway to strengthen institutions to deliver child sensitive social protection and what are the practical lessons from prior and ongoing efforts? What is the best way to build institutions to expand comprehensive social protection that benefits children, including social transfers and services? The goal of this analysis is to begin to lay a foundation for research and policy dialogue that can inform efforts to expand social protection for the most vulnerable children and families. To this end, this paper looks specifically at Governments' duties to fulfil the rights of citizens, including rights to social security.
