UNCROC public consultation

Have your say on New Zealand’s Fifth Periodic Report under UNCROC

New Zealand is due to report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (the Committee) by 5 May 2015, on Government progress to implement the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCROC). We have compiled the Report and now we want to know what you think.

The Report outlines the progress the Government has made in improving outcomes for children, implementing the articles of UNCROC, and addressing the 2011 Concluding Observations of the Committee over the reporting period (February 2011 to March 2015).
