The Principle of the Best Interest of the Child, as defined in Article 3 of the CRC, obliges States to take into consideration both short-term and long-term assessments of the child’s conditions and to integrate these in every decision-making process to adhere to the best possible decision for the child (Commissioner for Children’s Rights, 2018). The decision must be the best possible for the present and future life of the child. In every decision-making process, the possible positive and negative consequences must be evaluated. States must have procedures in place, so that professionals who work with children be able to evaluate the child’s best interest, and provide sufficient documentation on how they applied the process and why the specific decision is the best possible for the child (Commissioner for Children’s Rights, 2017). Safeguarding that processes which evaluate the best interest of the child are in place is a safety net for optimum quality of life for every child.
