BSAF, Bangladesh Shishu Adikhar Forum
The Government of Bangladesh (GoB) signed and ratified the UN CRC, committing itself to the implementation of the Convention. As a follow-up, it prepared an updated report on the situation of children in Bangladesh. This report – prepared by Bangladesh Shishu Adhikar Forum (BSAF) – is a collection of critical reviews by small groups and individual members of BSAF. A small core group of individuals from BSAF’s member organizations prepared a draft report, consulting with other BSAF members. Some children were also allowed to present their views on their situation.This report is designed to supplement the Bangladesh Government’s Report as well as present a critical review of the document. As a result of BSAF’s involvement, this alternative view adds an analysis of children and childhood in the Bangladeshi context in relation to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC).
