2021 marked the continued uncertainty created by the Covid-10 pandemic. Despite this, it became clear that we need to buckle up and regain ground in the work of protecting and promoting children’s rights. The protection of the rights of the most vulnerable members of our society needs to be intensified during challenging times as they are the first to lose out. The CCL’s work in 2021 focused on the rights of children access birth certificates, the rights of children with disabilities to access education; access to justice for child victims and witnesses of sexual offences; access to justice for children in conflict with the law, the rights of children in the care and protection system.
