NOTE: THE COMMITTEE ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD
The Committee on the Rights of the Child was established under the Convention to receive reports of states parties on the measures adopted to give effect to the rights recognized under the Convention, the progress made in securing the enjoyment of those rights and any factors or limitations affecting the degree of fulfillment of obligations under the Convention. The Committee prepares reports for the General Assembly periodically that include recommendations made by the Committee and summaries of the consideration of the reports of states parties. The reports are published as Official Records of the General Assembly, Supplement No. 41. The obligations of the Convention are important in situations concerning the role of religion in education and where the rights of the child and the religious rights of the parents may conflict.
