Our mission :

To defend the rights and dignity of the child worldwide

Our initiatives at the Human Rights Council

The Human Rights Council is the most prominent UN human rights body in the UN system. Its responsibilities include the examination of thematic issues (right to education, to nourishment, to religion…), of the situation of especially vulnerable populations (children victims of violence, indigenous populations, migrants…) as well as a review of the situation of human rights in each country. Today, BICE actively participates atthe Human Rights Council (HRC). Find out our actions at the Human Rights Council: Statements Side events Resolutions Panels Reports Videos
