Jersey submissions to the UNCRC pre-session
The documents below were submitted to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child ahead of the 94th pre-session in February 2023.
A pre-session is a one-week meeting period that takes place in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCR). During the pre-session, the Committee meets with the children’s rights defenders they have decided to invite, based on the alternative reports they have received, to prepare for the country session with State representatives.
A country pre-session is a 2.5-hour confidential meeting between all Committee members, children’s rights defenders invited by the Committee and UN agencies representatives, like UNICEF, to discuss the situation of children’s rights in a given country. It is an opportunity for civil society to share information and concerns before the Committee’s country session with the State representatives of the country concerned.
