The United States is preparing to submit its third report to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child on Optional Protocols to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Professor Jonathan Todres blogs at Human Rights at Home about the use of the reporting process as an opportunity to advance children’s rights and well-being. In his post, “The Reporting Process: An Underappreciated Human Rights Asset,” Todres describes ways that NGOs can participate in the review process, furthering law and policy that advances human rights.
