Day of General Discussion 2020: Alternative Care

Date: 19th June 2019
Category: Civil Rights and Freedoms


The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has selected the topic for the next Day of General Discussion to be held tentatively in September 2020 and it is alternative care! The proposal was submitted by a group of organisations led by Lumos.

The Committee holds a Day of General Discussion in Geneva (DGD) every two years in September focused on 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.
