In line with the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the UNCRC and the 5th anniversary since the entry into force of the OPIC, we are very happy to share with you our just created minisite gathering all the relevant information on the Optional Protocol.

The aim of the minisite is to provide a better understanding, for both adults and children, on the OPIC while becoming a platform gathering unique resources for anyone working on the OPIC (States, NHRIs, parliamentarians, academics, civil society including children).

We very much welcome exploring any opportunities for collaboration and we would be very happy to help disseminate any initiatives, projects, publications and research being carried out by YOU or partners in relation to the OPIC.

We are also developing a child rights jurisprudence database, which will be published on the minisite on 20 November, to coincide with the 30th Anniversary celebration of the UNCRC. The database will gather Views adopted by the UN Treaty Bodies on individual communications submitted by children, or on behalf of children, since the entry into force of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It will also provide summaries of adopted decisions.

Help us disseminate our minisite while strengthening the ratification campaign for OPIC using these hashtags: #OPIC #ratifyOPIC #accesstojustice #ChildRights
