    “The rights of the child require special protection, which is why this issue is one of Poland’s human rights priorities,” the deputy foreign minister said in his opening remarks at the OSCE Human Dimensions Seminar in Warsaw.

    “Poland was among the authors and initiators of negotiations leading up to the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and we have been steadfastly committed to international initiatives that protect children’s rights, in particular those concerned with countering violence against and abuse of children, including during armed conflict. We consider preventive measures to be especially important when it comes to the protection of children’s rights,” noted Deputy Minister Czaputowicz.

     

     

    Organized in Warsaw by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the Human Dimension Seminar each year looks at a different aspect of the OSCE’s human dimension. The event brings together close to 150 government officials, representatives of international organizations, and civil society activists. This year’s edition is held on 11-12 October under the theme: “Rights of the child: children in situations of risk”. The seminar’s agenda includes fighting and preventing trafficking in children, protecting the rights of children in detention centres, the situation of children in the juvenile justice system, and protecting children in crises. Moreover, the discussion panels will deal with Poland’s good practices in this regard.

     

     

    The seminar’s opening session was also attended by Ambassador Christian Strohal, Special Representative for the 2017 Austrian OSCE Chairmanship, and ODIHR Director Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir.
