Public Management and Policies for the Defense of Children and Adolescents

Public Management and Policies for the Defense of Children and Adolescents

The public management is an area that deals with the planning, organization, direction and control of resources (human, financial, material, among others) of a public entity, with the objective of achieving its goals and objectives. In the case of policies for the defense of children and adolescents, public management plays a fundamental role in guaranteeing the realization of their rights.

Public Policies for Children and Adolescents

Public policies for children and adolescents are a set of government actions and programs aimed at promoting, protecting and defending the rights of this portion of the population. They are based on the Child and Adolescent Statute (ECA), which establishes the fundamental rights of children and adolescents and guidelines for their protection and integral development.

Importance of Public Management

Public management is essential for the implementation and monitoring of these policies. Public managers are responsible for planning, executing and evaluating actions and programs, ensuring that resources are used efficiently and effectively, and that the expected results are achieved. They are also responsible for ensuring civil society participation in policy formulation, implementation and control.

Public Management Challenges in the Defense of Children and Adolescents

Despite the importance of public management, there are several challenges to be faced. Among them, the lack of resources, bureaucracy, lack of training of professionals, lack of integration between the different policies and services, and the difficulty of monitoring and evaluating actions and programs stand out.


Therefore, public administration plays a crucial role in defending children and adolescents. It is through it that public policies are planned, implemented and monitored, guaranteeing the realization of the rights of this part of the population. However, it is necessary to overcome the existing challenges and strengthen public management so that it can fulfill its role effectively and efficiently.
