The Child-Friendly City (CFC) label means different things to different people, influenced by their professional interests. We distinguish several approaches to CFCs and sketch their emergence within the context of profit-oriented urban markets shaped by processes of globalization. Against this background, we propose a typology of children acting as consumers, users, entrepreneurs and producers, and situate the papers in this special issue of Children, Youth and Environments within it. The conclusion briefly discusses observations arising from these papers and CFC work more generally.
