The Permanent Missions of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Slovenia, in partnership with the Committee on the Rights of the Child, the Office of the High Commission for Human Rights (OHCHR) and Child Rights Connect are pleased to invite you to the 2022 annual informal exchange between the Committee and States on the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a Communications Procedure (OPIC).
The annual informal exchange between the Committee on the Rights of the Child and States dialogue provides a space for informal exchange and strengthening of the collaboration between the Committee and States by allowing for a better understanding of the OPIC and its added value and by promoting this instrument’s ratification.
The informal exchange will allow for the Committee to update participants on the latest trends concerning their work on the OPIC, including its jurisprudence, and to provide an overview of the status of OPIC ratification. Participants will have the opportunity to raise questions and/or concerns in relation to the OPIC directly to Committee members and also to exchange and learn from other national OPIC ratification and implementation efforts and experiences.
The participation of NHRIs representatives and national Parliamentarians is most welcome.
