Committee on the Rights of the Child

The Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is the body of 18 Independent experts that monitors implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by its State parties. It also monitors implementation of three Optional Protocols to the Convention.

All States parties are obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the rights are being implemented. States must submit an initial report two years after acceding to the Convention and then periodic reports every five years. The Committee examines each report and addresses its concerns and recommendations to the State party in the form of “concluding observations”.

The Committee is also able to consider  individual complaints alleging violations of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as to carry out  inquiries into allegations of grave or systematic violations of rights under the Convention and its two optional protocols.

The Committee also publishes its interpretation of the content of human rights provisions, known as general comments on thematic issues and organizes days of general discussion.
