Actions

Actions

Sometimes you need to take action to attract interest, inform and engage policy-makers, professional groups and the general public on human rights issues.

The Human Rights Channel provides a platform for selected public interest actions linked to specific Council of Europe standards, conventions and mechanisms.

 

END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Take action to End Violence Against Women and mark 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Everyone has a role. What’s yours?

Children's rights are human rights

I am a person who is now a child. I have rights. I deserve respect for the person I am, and I need support to become the adult I want to be. My age and my lack of experience make me vulnerable. I depend on grown-ups for many things. I might not have lived long, but I have my own voice. I think about the world around me.

Do courts, judges and the police speak my language? Do they see me? Do they involve me and listen to me? Do doctors talk to me about my health in a way that I can understand? Does society protect me from sexual exploitation and violence, and do people hear me when I am trying to protect myself?

Do adults consider my rights when they take the decisions that will affect my opportunities for education and employment? Do they think about where I live, or how much food I have to eat? I want to be heard.

The adult I will become is influenced by the life that I live as the child I am now. I will contribute to the society of tomorrow. Are you putting my rights first?
