NGO report on Australia’s compliance with International Convention on the Rights of the Child
A coalition of Australian non-government organisations has published a comprehensive report on Australia’s compliance with its legal obligations under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Listen to Children report was endorsed in whole or in part by 84 organisations and was formally launched on 6 July 2011 in Canberra.
Australia is due to be reviewed by the Committee on the Rights of the Child in January/February 2012 and a delegation of non-government representatives will travel to Geneva in October 2011 to brief the Committee at its pre-sessional meeting. Further information about the report and Australia’s review by the Committee is available at http://www.childrights.org.au.
