Street Children Legal Atlas Pro Bono Project
Baker McKenzie Taipei office has participated in the global pro bono project "Legal Atlas for Street Children" by contributing to the Myanmar and Taiwan section of the atlas. The Legal Atlas has been created for and in collaboration with the Consortium for Street Children, with the assistance of hundreds of pro bono lawyers from Baker McKenzie and corporate in-house legal teams worldwide such as JPMorgan, Google and Merck. The Legal Atlas will be an online database documenting street child law across the globe, and will help countries improve their standards, policies, and practices concerning child rights, in keeping with the UN General Comment on Children in Street Situations.
In order to fulfil the goals above, each group of volunteers assigned country by country need to draft a "country report" which contains information relating to the following three areas:
- Status offences – criminalization of acts commonly associated with street-connected children, for example loitering, begging etc.
- Police round-ups – legality of police targeting street-connected children, i.e. are police round-ups of street-connected children legally prohibited.
- Legal identity –how street-connected children are able to obtain official legal identification, how easy it is for them to do so and the impact this has on street-connected children obtaining access to services such as education and healthcare.
