Children human rights defenders
Day of General Discussion (DGD) 2018: Children Human Rights Defenders!
The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child dedicated its 2018 DGD to the thematic “Protecting and empowering children as human rights defenders”, after accepting Child Rights Connect’s proposal. As such, Child Rights Connect was the main partner organization of the DGD, working closely with the Committee, OHCHR, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights defenders and many other key experts and stakeholders, including children.
The thematic of Children Human Rights Defenders was not just a day conference but is an ambitious long-term project to promote a global movement for children human rights defenders. Such movement will catalyse and strengthen existing initiatives to empower children as human rights defenders, by connecting them to broader initiatives at national, regional and international levels.
