This report by the Australian Child Rights taskforce convened by UNICEF Australia and the NYCYLC on the progress of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in the 25 years since Australia ratified the Convention, while indicating a number of areas of progress in this area, also highlights serious deficiencies in our national performance.

This joint statement has been agreed upon by many parties including Childrens Rights International.

It is an initiative strongly supported by UNICEF and significant Departments of the Cambodian Government as well as a wide range of NGO's and is an attempt to recreate an initiative that led to the introduction of the Juvenile Justice Law, which was highly successful.
