Switzerland's third reporting cycle on the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (2019-...)
From 30 September until 4 October 2019, the 84th pre-sessional working group meeting of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child will take place in Geneva. The working group will formulate a list of questions addressed to Switzerland (so called «List of Issues Prior to Reporting»).
The questions will be based on the Committees' recommendations (Concluding Observations) deriving from the last reporting cycle. On 1 July 2019, the Child Rights Netwerk Switzerland published recommendations for the list.
According to this new «simplified reporting procedure», Switzerland will formulate its next state report based on this «List of Issues Prior to Reporting».
Previously, Switzerland first submitted its report on the implementation of all provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Based on this report, the Committee formulated a «List of Issues», which then served as the basis for a second report submitted by Switzerland.
