Day of General Discussion: "Protecting and Empowering Children as Human Rights Defenders"

The Committee also encourages the submission of written contributions, to be sent by 31 July 2018

The 2018 DGD is the first ever global discussion focusing on children as human rights defenders. Its main goal is to bring together a global movement for children human rights defenders including children, States, National Human Rights Institutions, Children’s Ombudspersons, the UN, civil society and the private sector to promote understanding about the role of children as human rights defenders, identify what needs to be done for child rights-related laws, policies and practices to take adequate account of children as human rights defenders; and for human rights defenders-related laws, policies and practices to be child-sensitive.

Specific objectives of the 2018 DGD

  1. Collect children’s views about their experiences as human rights defenders;
  2. Assess legislation, jurisprudence, policies and relevant measures aimed at protecting or empowering children human rights defenders, by providing examples of good practices and challenges, including from children’s perspectives;
  3. Clarify the States’ obligations applicable to children human rights defenders under the CRC and existing standards on human rights defenders;
  4. Identify key elements for an effective implementation of a child rights approach to the situation of children who are, or want to become, human rights defenders, including specific recommendations for duty bearers that can inform the Committee’s recommendations to States.
