This program focuses on promoting implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), through building awareness, knowledge and understanding and providing space for dialogue and the sharing of experiences.
The CRC is the most widely ratified international human rights treaty in the world. This program recognises the need to build capacity within governments and civil society to implement the CRC. Its current focus is child rights in Australia, organised around the human rights treaty reporting cycle.
This program is being delivered through a combination of face-to-face workshops (F2F) and a series of CRC Webinars.
The program is a partnership between Youth Law Australia, and Australian Lawyers for Human Rights and draws on the expertise of Dr Noam Peleg and Associate Professor Faith Gordon, and Dr Georgina Dimopoulos.
As interest has been so high, DTP has also established a CRC Knowledge Network to share resources and information and develop a community of practice.
