The United Nation’s Child Rights Committee is meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, from 13 to 31 May to review Botswana, Cabo Verde, Côte d’Ivoire, Malta, Singapore, and Tonga. The Committee will also review Sri Lanka under the Optional Protocol on the sale of children, according to a press statement.

The aforementioned states are parties to the Child Rights Convention and its Optional Protocols, and are required to undergo regular reviews on how they are implementing the committee’s previous recommendations and the convention or its optional protocols, the press statement says.

The public sessions will take place in the ground floor conference room of Palais Wilson in Geneva.

The committee is scheduled to publish its findings on the respective states on 6 June 2019, and to hold a press conference on the same day.
