We are currently experiencing a very bleak time for children’s rights globally. UNICEF describes the COVID-19 pandemic as the ‘biggest global crisis for children’ that has rolled back ‘virtually every measure of progress for children’ plunging 100 million more children into poverty. The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child has condemned many jurisdictions for their failure to respect, promote and fulfil children’s rights in accordance with the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
In this webinar, Dr Holly Doel-Mackaway (Children’s Rights Academic and Expert Counsellor, Human Rights Committee, LAWASIA) will talk with three leading children’s rights experts from Japan, India, and Malaysia about the status of children and young people’s human rights in the world today.
The webinar will examine some of the key children’s rights challenges facing the region and share some inspiring examples of where children’s rights are being fought for and significant advances are being made. There will be time at the end of the webinar for participants to discuss how members of the legal profession can play a vital role in advancing children’s rights across the Asia-Pacific region.
