RATIFY OP3 CRC to provide international justice to children!

The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a communications procedure (OP3 CRC) came into force on 14 April 2014, providing children with the opportunity to access justice at the international level. But children will only be able to use this complaints procedure if their States ratify OP3 CRC.

Children’s rights organisations around the world have joined to create this International Coalition to campaign for ratification and make this complaints procedure a reality for children.
