2016 was a year of taking the rights of children in South Africa to the international and regional stage. During 2015 and 2016 the Centre for Child Law played a leading role in the Alternate Report Coalition – Child Rights South Africa (ARC-CRSA), a coalition of civil society organisations. ARC-CRSA made written and oral submissions to the African Committee of Experts on the Rights of the child in 2015, and to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child in 2016. These committees oversee the implementation of the international and regional instruments. This Annual Report gives a description of this experience and more of the Centre’s work.
