Children should be able to apply to the UN for assistance


Civic organizations in Ukraine are hoping that the country will take part in drawing up a special UN Protocol on appeals from children to the UN Committee. A request to this effect has already been sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As reported here already, many civic groups believe that Ukrainian courts do little to safeguard children’s rights.  Hence this initiative which, as Oksana Moskalenko form the “Ukrainian Women’s Consortium” explains, would mean that children could directly, or via a representative, approach the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child over violations of their rights if courts in the country could not help.
