Children and Adolescents' Contributions to the Draft General Comment on Child Rights and Business Sector

Young people from Argentina, Bangladesh, Costa Rica, Kenya, Paraguay, Sudan and Tanzania were invited to review and share their feedback on the draft version of the Committee on the Rights of the Child's General Comment on Child Rights and Business Sector.

To support the process, each group received a consultation package which included: a facilitator’s guide; power-point presentation; summary of the General Comment; and questions and activities for group discussion. The express aim of the consultations was to explore the details of the draft General Comment and what governments should do to ensure business respects children’s rights. This document is a summary of the collected views, comments, and importantly, the recommendations of young people who took part in the various consultations.
