About the course

The short course is part of the capacity strengthening initiative of the Children’s Rights Unit at the Centre for Human Rights. Its aim is to equip professionals in the area of children’s rights with adequate knowledge and skills that will enable them to deliver better on their mandate and contribute to the advancement of children’s rights in Africa.

Children constitute more than half of the population of Africa as a continent. To ensure that these children live, survive and develop to their full potential, African countries have enacted national legislation, and ratified many regional and international human rights instruments to protect and promote the rights and welfare of children. Despite these legal and policy commitments, the plights of children in Africa remain dire. Lack of effective implementation of legal and policy frameworks have been identified as one of the major reasons for the deplorable state of children in Africa. One main contributing factor to the ineffective implementation of legal and policy frameworks dealing with children’s rights and wellbeing is a lack of appropriate knowledge and awareness among relevant policy makers and implementers in Africa.

Topics may include

  • United Nations framework of children’s rights
  • African Union framework of children’s rights
  • Children’s rights in the traditional African setting
  • Child justice
  • Child abduction and adoption
  • The reporting mechanism in realizing children’s rights in Africa
  • Child participation
  • Children without parental care
  • Children with disability
  • Impact of United Nations and African Union treaties in realising children’s rights in Africa
