Rights of the child in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by Olivier Cosandey( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child contains observations of the World Organisation Against Torture (omct) concerning the application of the Convention by Democratic Republic of the Congo (drc). The report's introductory summary asserts that although the drc has ratified the Convention and other international instruments condemning the practice of torture, torture seems to be systematically used in the drc. The report notes that the current conflict in the drc has resulted in large numbers of children being recruited/forced into armed service, killed, or displaced. Considerable discrimination is evident against girls, displaced children, refugee children, child soldiers, street children, and ethnic minority children. The report presents observations and recommendations in the following areas: (1) definition of a child; (2) torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment; (3) protection against all forms of violence, particularly sexual abuse; (4) children in conflict with the law; and (5) rehabilitation. The report's conclusion maintains that the state's report demonstrates its awareness of obstacles to applying the Convention, but has omitted important information, especially concerning ill-treatment and cases of torture. The report concludes with a summary of observations and recommendations by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child--Democratic Republic of the Congo, including those related to legislation; budget allocation; cooperation with nongovernmental organizations; civil rights and freedom; family environment and alternative care; basic health and welfare; education, leisure, and cultural activities; and special protection.

Rights of the child in Guatemala by Silvia Rodríguez Fernández( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child contains observations of the World Organisation Against Torture (omct) concerning the application of the Convention by Guatemala. The report's introductory summary asserts that the end of armed conflict in Guatemala and the establishment of a peace process coupled with other government regulations has led to conditions in which it may be possible to strengthen legal instruments for protecting human rights and improve living conditions for Guatemalan children. The report presents observations and recommendations in the following areas: (1) definition of a child; (2) child prostitution and child trafficking; (3) torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment; (4) street children; and (5) children in conflict with the law. The report's conclusion maintains that although Guatemala has made efforts to protect children's rights, those efforts are not as effective as they could have been had the entry into force of the Code on Children and Young People not been continually postponed. The omct expressed concern about the increase in the prostitution of girls and the lack of government effort to combat the trade as well as the high rate of illegal adoptions. The report concludes with a summary of observations and recommendations by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child--Guatemala, in the following areas: civil rights and freedoms; family environment and alternative care; basic health and welfare; education, leisure, and cultural activities; special protection measures; and dissemination of documents from the reporting process.

This report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child contains observations of the World Organisation Against Torture (omct) concerning the application of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by Algeria. The report's introduction asserts that although omct welcomes legislative and institutional efforts made by Algeria since 1992 to carry out its obligations under the Convention, many efforts thus far are insufficient or contradictory.

Following its own conclusions, the report includes a summary of observations and recommendations by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child--Algeria, in the following areas: positive factors, factors and difficulties impeding the implementation of the convention, principal subjects of concern, and suggestions and recommendations.

This report to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child contains observations of the World Organisation Against Torture (omct) concerning the application of the Convention by Turkey and observations regarding violence against girls in Turkey. The report is presented in three major parts. Part 1 asserts that despite the considerable legal framework for protecting children's rights, there is adequate proof that there are serious deficiencies in Turkey's system of child protection. Observations and recommendations are made in the following areas: (1) definition of a child; (2) torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment; and (3) children in conflict with the law. This part concludes with recommendations related to the discrimination of Kurdish children and girls, treatment of refugee children, torture, and the juvenile justice system. Part 2 focuses on violence against girls in Turkey. This second part details problems related to domestic violence, marital rape, crimes committed against females in the name of "honor," virginity testing, sexual violence, prostitution and trafficking in girls, and state-perpetrated violence against girls. This part concludes with recommendations related to each of the problems discussed. Part 3 provides a summary of observations and recommendations by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child--Turkey, including those related to difficulties in implementation the Convention; civil rights and freedoms; family environment and alternative care; basic health and welfare; education, leisure, and cultural activities; and special protection measures.

Rights of the child in South Africa by Carin Benninger-Budel( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child contains observations of the World Organisation Against Torture (omct) concerning the application of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child by the nation of South Africa. Noting that the Convention is the only "mainstream" human rights instrument that explicitly states the rights apply equally to female and male children, the report first provides observations and recommendations concerning violence against girls in South Africa. General observations in this area indicate that despite Government efforts at the legislative, policy, and awareness levels, there remain, both in law and practice, discrimination against girls and conflict between the constitution and religious and customary laws which perpetuate harmful practices against girls. This section then examines: violence against girls in the family, including early marriages, bride prices, genital mutilation, and virginity testing; violence against women in the community, specifically rape, and trafficking and prostitution; and violence perpetrated by the state, noting emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of children in residential facilities such as prisons. The remainder of the report examines application of the U.N. Convention. The introduction for this section notes the new constitution and several human rights treaties signed by South Africa. The section then notes the discrepancies among these treaties and between common law and customary rulings with regard to the definition of the child. Constitutional and legislative provisions are then noted in the areas of: child protection against all forms of discrimination; best interests of the child; right to participation; freedom from torture, inhumane and degrading treatment or punishment; deprivation of liberty; sexual exploitation and abuse; child labor; refugees and asylum seeker children; and children in conflict with the law. The concluding section notes that while the government of South Africa has adopted several measures and introduced a number of amendments to fit domestic legislation to the U.N. Convention, there are still many gaps and contradictions at the legislative level, and several problems have arisen from the economic and social conditions of the country. Specific recommendations are offered. (Hth)
