hosted by the National Assembly of Armenia and organized by the Inter-Parliamentary Union and UNICEF

Yerevan, Armenia, 14-16 June 2011

The Inter-Parliamentary Union and UNICEF will organise a regional seminar for parliaments of the CEE-CIS region on Making Child Rights a Reality for the Most Vulnerable Children. The seminar is hosted by the National Assembly of Armenia and will take place in Yerevan from 14 to 16 June 2011.

The seminar will aim to facilitate debate on ways and mechanisms of addressing the needs of the most vulnerable children, reaching out to them, supporting their well being and development, and ensuring respect for their rights.

The seminar will focus on two specific issues: Investing in a good start to life for marginalized children and protecting them from violence. It will address all functions of a parliament, with a particular focus on the oversight role, and examine how these can serve to protect children and ensure respect for their rights. Experience from various countries will be presented, and specific case studies addressed. Particular attention would be placed on reaching out to the most marginalised children and ensuring respect for children and their rights with equity.


Practical and substantive documents related to the Seminar are available only in English,
which is the only working language for this particular event.
