In partnership with Unicef UK and the Equality and Human Rights Commission, CRAE has published three new briefings to help parliamentarians and civil society organisations hold government to account to ensure the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child’s (UN Committee) latest Concluding Observations on the UK are taken forward.

The Concluding Observations set out the UN Committee’s verdict on how well the UK is respecting children’s rights following its examination last year on the UK’s implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).  While the UN Committee noted some areas of progress since its 2016 report on the UK, it highlighted a wide range of issues that are detrimentally impacting on children and made nearly 200 recommendations for action.   It is crucial that these recommendations are now implemented.

Downloads of the briefings are available from the website (click read this report).
