Implementation of the Project “Monitoring the Implementation of the Recommendations of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child”

Another meeting on monitoring the implementation of the recommendations of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child was organized in the premises of the Child Rights Centre on Friday, 16 March 2018.

The meeting was an opportunity to further discuss the need for development of an instrument for monitoring the state bodies’ performance in line with the Concluding Observations of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child on the combined second and third periodic reports of the Republic of Serbia. The discussion focused particularly on importance of development of indicators as integral part of this instrument.

All recommendations should be seen in connection to the recommendations of other United Nations human rights mechanisms relevant for Serbia but special attention should be taken to specificities of each recommendation. Particular focus was put on defining outcome, but also process indicators.

The meeting gathered independent experts, representatives of the UNICEF Office in Serbia and the Government of Serbia Office for Human and Minority Rights, as well as representatives of the Coalition for monitoring the rights of the child in Serbia: ASTRA, Belgrade Centre for Human Rights, Centre for Social Policy, Uzice Child Rights Centre and Child Rights Centre.

The project “Monitoring the Implementation of the Recommendations of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child” is supported by the UNICEF Office in Serbia and implemented by the Child Rights Centre with the support of the Government of Serbia Office for Human and Minority Rights. The project expected result is improved monitoring of the implementation of the recommendations of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child through cooperation of state, civil society organisations and children.
