Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the Child-Friendly City policies of seven municipalities certified as such by UNICEF Korea through April 2016. These policies were analyzed in terms of six elements suggested by Chamber & Bonk: goals, forms of benefits and services, eligibility rules, administration and delivery, financing, and interaction. From this research, implications were derived, such as the need for focused policies, the guarantee of practical participation, active publicity and secure budgets, and construction of organizations and cooperative networks for supporting child-friendly cities; furthermore, this study suggests specific alternatives to compensate for policy limitations. Specifically, the study provides substantive information, ideals, and values, and suggests ideas for institutional improvement of cities that want to join UNICEF's Child-Friendly Cities Initiative.
