CRC Webinar - Child Removal in Australia: Violating the CRC
The Committee on the Rights of the Child has expressed concern at the increase in child removals and the inconsistent criteria for removals across different jurisdictions. It highlighted the disproportionate rate of removals of children from First Nations’ families and made a number of recommendations on these concerns. It calls on Australian governments to Strongly invest in prevention measures for children and their families to avoid child removal and, when this is a necessary measure, to limit it to the shortest time possible, and ensure participation of children, their families and communities in decision-making, to guarantee an individualised and community-sensitive approach.
