    We work to advance the sustained protection, promotion and fulfillment of children’s rights across the world, as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We do this in direct collaboration with children human rights defenders, including children themselves, using UN human rights mechanisms to ensure positive long-term impact at every level. During its sessions, the Committee on the Rights of the Child conducts dialogue with the States who have ratified the Convention and/or its Optional Protocols in order to assess progress and shortfalls in their implementation. Child Rights Connect follows all the sessions and produces its own summary country reports, highlighting reporting status, main issues discussed and main recommendations included in the Concluding Observations. 1 volunteer needed
