The ICJ has submitted to the Committee on the Rights of the Child an alternative report in advance of the Committee’s examination of the third and fourth periodic reports of Germany under the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The ICJ submission draws the Committee’s attention to concerns related to:
- The pandemic influenza (H1N1) vaccine;
- The coal industry and its impact on children’s health; and
- Violation of children’s rights and German companies’ supply chains and purchase of raw materials.
The Committee will examine the third and fourth periodic reports of Germany during its 65th session held in January 2014, following which it will adopt Concluding Observations setting out recommendations to the Government of Germany.
