Child Rights Connect (CRC) has published a series of case studies on NGOs’ and National Human Rights Institutions’ activities engaging with specific recommendations of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

Through these country level examples CRC seeks to promote a cyclical approach to engaging in the reporting process of the Committee on the Rights of the Child and to encourage NGOs to use the Committee’s recommendations to the fullest in their advocacy work. Each study provides a brief explanation about the activities undertaken and the results:

They are available in English and will be soon published in French and Spanish.
