Stakeholders Report: Situation of Child Rights in Bangladesh

This report has been prepared by the Child Rights Governance Assembly (CRGA), a civil society advocacy network of 17 organizations including children and youth organizations [See Annex 1]. It draws upon a series of national consultations held in June and September-October 2012 by the CRGA and on the publications, documentation and experience of the CRGA members. The key concerns raised in this report have also been discussed nationally by CRGA Members at a consultation meeting with the Government of Bangladesh (GoB), particularly with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs and with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in September 2012. This report refers to continuities of law and practice impacting on child rights with a particular focus on incidents and trends of concern observed since the last UPR held in 2009. The report also compares the delivery of the Government against commitments made at the 2009 UPR with regard to the protection and promotion of the rights of the children and draws specific recommendations to that end.
