World Children’s Day
China through its current actions breaches the Convention on the Rights of the Child, specifically Articles 14 and 29. The UNGA parallel event will focus on the testimonies of children who are victims and survivors of China’s persecution of children of faith, recognizing that, “The participation of children matters profoundly” and that improvements to the rights of the child are more likely to succeed when informed by their views.
Through the experiences and recommendations of survivors and those knowledgeable in the area, the event hopes to serve as a base to understand the widespread effects of China’s breaches to the Convention the Rights of the Child article 14 and facilitate steps forward for member states and UN bodies to address the violations.
