The article presents a model of children’s participation in proceedings conducted in family courts, which was implemented in a pilot project in Israel. The article presents an ongoing process of cumulative insights during the implementation of the pilot and after its conclusion. These insights emerged from findings collected in the course of two studies. One was a formative evaluation study that accompanied the pilot project, and the other a follow-up study conducted three years after the pilot’s conclusion. The integrated analysis of cumulative findings from these two studies points to the significant contribution of children’s participation in these proceedings to the legal decisions and to the children’s well being. The analysis also exposed factors facilitating and obstructing the full implementation of the right to participation in Israeli law.
