IJDH’s Actions aiding Children’s Rights

IJDH takes action

The Lawyers’ Earth quake Response Net work (LERN), the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI) and the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH), filed a joint sub mission through the Universal Periodic Review procedure, summarizing human rights issues raised in 13 stake holder reports submitted by a coalition of 57 grassroots groups, internally displaced persons camps, non-governmental organizations and academic institutions in Haiti. One of these human rights reports specifically focuses on the Rights of  Children, and another focuses on Child Labor and Child Slavery violations.

By bringing attention to these human right violations to an international level, IJDH-BAI hopes the Haitian government will be held more accountable and respond appropriately to stop such abuses from happening.
