The Coalition for Monitoring Child Rights in the Republic of Serbia (Child Rights Centre, Child Rights Centre Uzice, Belgrade Centre for Human Rights, ASTRA – Anti-Trafficking Action and Center for Social Policy) prepared the publication “Recommendations of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child – How Can We Achieve Them from the Perspective of the Coalition for Monitoring Child Rights in the Republic of Serbia”, as the starting point and guidelines for advocacy activities in order to implement the recommendations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. The publication lists the recommendations that the Coalition considers to be of a priority, considering that all recommendations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child are important and that it is necessary to act upon them.
The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child has reviewed the Second and Third Periodic Reports on the Implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in the Republic of Serbia, adopted the Concluding Observations on 3 February 2017 and invited Serbia to submit the next periodic report by 24 May 2022.
Through the concluding observations, the Committee pointed to what is needed to be undertaken in order to improve the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in Serbia. These measures are primarily the obligation of the State, but the role of the civil sector and the general public is to encourage and collaborate with the State.
This publication was created within the project “Child Rights in Policy and Practice”, implemented by the Child Rights Centre in cooperation with Save the Children International, and funded by the Government of Sweden.
