Complaints Mechanism: A step closer to adoption

Category: General measures of implementation

8th June 2011

The establishment of a complaints mechanism for the CRC moved a step closer as the Chairperson of the Working Group presented his report, including a draft text to be adopted by the Council.

The Chairperson of the Working Group, Drahoslav Stefanek, made a statement to the Human Rights Council on 6 June, saying the draft Optional Protocol had been the result of a compromise and, whilst it might not initially fully meet expectations, it constituted an instrument through which increased protection for the rights of children could be provided for under the Convention.
