CRIN Toolkit on complaints procedure
The toolkit created by Child Rights International Network (CRIN) aims to explain how the complaints procedure for the Convention on the Rights of the Child works. The toolkit includes an annotated guide to the third Optional Protocol to the CRC and a comparative guide to the international communication procedures of the UN.
The document sets out the Who, What, When, Where and How of the CRC complaints mechanism. It is divided into three sections that correspond with the three ways that violations of children’s rights can be raised with the Committee: individual complaints, inquiries and inter-state communications.
