UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Monitoring and Reporting. An overview of South Asia

Monitoring and Reporting of the UNCRC has always been one of Save the Children’s key activities across the globe. Assessing children’s situation in different contexts and relating their situations to the existing laws and policy is a vital step in developing constructive criticism and innovative alternatives. In South Asia, civil society organisations are active in developing alternative reports to the Committee on the Rights of the Child. Coalitions and Networks of Civil Society organisations are engaged in highlighting the issues children face in different countries. The process is inclusive and children have also participated in assessing the situation of children and presenting their findings to the UN Committee on Child Rights. This report analyses State reports to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, alternative reports by civil society and Concluding Observations by the Committee for seven South Asian countries, including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
