Call for Proposals: 2018 UNCRC Day of General Discussion

Categories: General measures of implementation and General principles

21st August 2017

The Secretariat of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has launched a call for proposals for the 2018 Day of General Discussion (DGD), which will take place in Geneva during September next year.

What is a day of general discussion?

The Committee on the Rights of the Child (the Committee) holds a Day of General Discussion in Geneva every two years in September about a specific article of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) or a related subject. These meetings are an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the contents and implications of the CRC. The topic is selected by the Committee and announced at least one year in advance.

Child Rights Connect is currently drafting a Day of General Discussion proposal on children human rights defenders. For more information and to submit an interest in being part of a Day of General Discussion coordination group, please contact Emma at grindulis@childrightsconnect.org
