UN Committee on the Rights of the Child
Each of the 10 Human Rights Treaties has an expert group, a Treaty Body, responsible for reviewing whether States are fulfilling their obligations of that specific Treaty. The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (Committee) is the Treaty Body for the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocols.
Child Rights Connect is the organization specialized in the Committee’s work. We have a unique overview of its standards and practices as well as an in-depth knowledge of its functioning. Given our long-standing cooperation with the Committee and OHCHR, we act as liaison between children’s rights defenders, including children, and the Committee and we are active members of TB-Net, an informal group of international NGOs and networks working in strategic partnerhships with the UN treaty bodies.
2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child! Find out more on our dedicated page.
