Launch of child-friendly version of Communications Procedure by UN Expert on Violence against Children

 [19 September 2013] - 

The office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) on Violence against Children has launched a child-friendly guide to the CRC’s complaints procedure entitled ‘Raising Understanding among Children and Young People on the Optional Protocol on a Communications Procedure’. The guide aims to raise children’s awareness about their rights and enhance their confidence to speak up and seek support.



CRIN has produced a toolkit explaining how the complaints procedure works, and includes an annotated guide, as well as a comparative guide to other international communications procedures of the UN. The toolkit is available in Arabic, English, French and Russian.


Please note that these reports are hosted by CRIN as a resource for Child Rights campaigners, researchers and other interested parties.
