Using the Convention in practice: A view from the Bench – Webinar Recording

This ninth webinar in the series explored the value of applying the CRC and other rights instruments, in litigation and decision-making in cases involving children and young people. It drew on the direct experience of a Judge in Aotearoa New Zealand who refers to and employs the CRC, CRPD and UN General Comments in his decisions. Judge Tony Fitzgerald reflected on the benefits of applying these instruments in achieving better outcomes for children and young people and what this means for children, litigators, the police, social services and others working with children.
