Questionnaire of Consultation for a Report on Organized Armed Violence and the rights of boys, girls and adolescents in the Americas, 2014

Between 25th and 28th February, 2014, the Rapporteurship on the Rights of the Child made public a Questionnaire of Consultation in order to receive information for a Regional Report on the situation of boys, girls and adolescents in different contexts of organized armed violence in the region. The main purpose of this study is to develop recommendations to the States that provide guidelines for actions which, under international human rights law, they must take for the effective protection of the fundamental rights of boys, girls and adolescents in these contexts. The information gathered through this questionnaire will be one of the sources for that report. The deadline to receive responses is March 31, 2014. Please send them to [email protected], using “Questionnaire on Organized Armed Violence” in the subject of the email.

The IACHR has decided to extend the deadline to receive responses until May 15th, 2014.
