Children's Rights in the Sudan - An Analysis Based on the CRC Reports

The purpose of this paper is to make an analysis of Sudan’s two CRC reports, as well as the alternative reports, using the programme areas of Save the Children Sweden as the analytical framework. Considering that the next report from the Sudan to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child is due in September 2007, this study will provide an important background to and platform for the preparations of the upcoming reporting process. This paper summarises and structures the content of the previous reports on the implementation of the children’s rights in the north as well as in the south of the country, in order to facilitate the preparations for the forthcoming CRC report. In this regard, it is important to emphasize that this study is based on historical documents, written in a time when the civil war was still ongoing and the conflict between the north and the south was a reality that overshadowed every aspect of life in the Sudan.
