Children’s rights are universal and non-negotiable. But even though governments around the world have committed to recognising the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, there still remains much to be done. The National Coalition Deutschland is working tirelessly to draw attention to any weaknesses identified here in Germany and to suggest improvements.
We support and supervise the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by the Federal Government. Every five years, we summarise our results in a supplementary report that is sent to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child based in Geneva. All member organisations make their own contribution to the report.
But who is better placed to assess the implementation of the rights of children and young people than the children and young people themselves? That is why the Second Report on Children’s Rights is also published, being the result of work of more than 2,700 children and young people.
