What is a Day of General Discussion?

The Committee on the Rights of the Child holds a Day of General Discussion in Geneva every two years. The Day focuses on a specific article of the UNCRC or a related subject. These meetings are an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the contents and implications of the UNCRC. Children and young people from across the world are involved in planning the event and participating at it.
