In 2019, the Committee on the Rights of the Child celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted on 20 November 1989.

To celebrate this historic event, the Committee, in collaboration with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), is encouraging States parties to renew their commitment to the Convention by pledging to take one specific and measurable action for the promotion, protection and realization of the rights of the child.

On the 8th March, the Committee requested Member States provide information to the Committee on their commitments with respect to children’s rights, as well as national initiatives, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Convention.

The information received from Member States will be posted on their webpage and displayed at the Palais des Nations in November.
