Evaluation Executive Summary, January 2021 - Engaging civil society to influence the CRC List of Issues Prior to Reporting
About the project
In 2021-22, the UK Government is being examined on its implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (the Committee). The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) supported the Children’s Rights Alliance for England (CRAE) on a project to engage Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the initial stage of the process.
This would create CSO-led recommendations to the Committee of what it should request from the UK Government in its List of Issues Prior to Reporting (LOIPR). In doing so, CRAE aimed to build CSOs knowledge and capacity on child rights. The project was led by staff at CRAE with input from a Steering Group of 10 CSOs.
