Centre for Child Rights
The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child reviewed the combined Second and Third Periodic Reports on the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in the Republic of Serbia, and adopted concluding observations on February 3rd, 2017, inviting Serbia to submit its next periodic report by May 24th, 2022. In the concluding observations, the Committee made recommendations as to what needs to be done by the Serbian government to improve compliance with the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The responsibility for improvement lies primarily in the hands of the state, however, civil society and the general public can take an active role in encouraging the state to make changes and cooperate with it towards these ends. Within the project “Child Rights in Policies and Practices,” implemented by the Child Rights Centre in cooperation with Save the Children International, the Coalition for Monitoring Child Rights in the Republic of Serbia prepared this document as the starting point with guidelines for advocacy activities to promote full adaptation of the recommendations by the Committee on the Rights of the Child. This document singles out the recommendations that the Coalition for Monitoring Child Rights consider a priority, noting that all other recommendations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child are important and that it is necessary to act upon them too.
