UN treaty bodies are committees of independent experts that monitor implementation of the core international human rights treaties. Since rights related to early childhood care and education are reflected in multiple human rights instruments, different treaty bodies including the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC); Committee on the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR); Committee on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (CMW); Committee on The Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW); and Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) may review certain aspects ECCE rights and provide recommendations. Among them, the CRC is important as all rights guaranteed in the Convention apply to young children.

Advocacy to UN treaty bodies during states periodic review provides an opportunity for civil society organisations to highlight the gaps and/or violations as regards the implementation of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) rights guaranteed in the convention and proposed recommendations to the Committees.

Advocacy with UN treaty bodies requires comprehensive monitoring of ECCE rights through collecting and analysing disaggregated data based on human rights indicators and reporting the editing of a solid report to be submitted to UN Treaty bodies. Therefore, this capacity-building session is conceptualised to:

  • Critically analyse the issues and challenges of related to ECCE rights from national, regional, and global perspectives.
  • Acquire knowledge and skills in monitoring ECCE rights
  • Exchange best practices on important dimensions of advocacy initiatives at the national level
  • Learn knowledge and skills for reporting and conducting advocacy with UN Treaty bodies
