Call for children’s participation to develop a child-friendly ICERD

Date: 28th May 2021
Category: UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimin


Encourage children to participate in a project to develop the first ever child-friendly International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) and its standards.   

Children are encouraged to give feedback on the first child-friendly draft of this Convention and its standards. The aim is to create a clear, simple and accessible text for children aged 12 and above. In doing so, this project hopes to develop an educational tool that can be used by all, to promote awareness-raising and understanding.

The following supporting tools have been developed for those supporting children to take part:  

The deadline to send feedback is 31st July 2021 with some flexibility if needed. 

If you have any questions, please email Emma Grindulis at for more information.
