GFMD Civil Society Days event on child rights in the Global Compacts



Time: 16:15
Location: Berlin, Germany

  • Date: Friday 30 June 2017
  • Time: 16:15 – 17:45
  • Location: Robert Bosch Foundation, Französische Straße 32, Berlin

The side event will present the working document entitled ‘Child Rights in the Global Compacts’. This document lays out goals, targets and indicators – in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – through which six key commitments to child rights outlined in the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants can be operationalised across both global compacts.

The Working Document was developed by the Initiative for Child Rights in the Global Compacts driven by a civil society-led steering committee, which is co-convened by Save the Children and Terre des Hommes and which comprises experts, multilateral institutions, and non-governmental and philanthropic organisations.

The side event will report back from the Global Conference on Children on the Move organised in Berlin 12th and 13th June, discuss and advocate for a strong global strategy on protecting the rights of children on the move and other children affected by migration.
