Call for Proposals: 2018 UNCRC Day of General Discussion
Date: 21st August 2017
Category: General measures of implementation, General principles
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.
