Ensure political rights of children keeping them away from political violence

In Bangladesh, there is no clause in the political party constitutions and Representation of People’s Order (RPO) of Election Commission about children’s participation in politics; and there is no guideline to protect them from any political violence. In the past children were widely misused by the political parties in different political activities and for that they were the victims of physical and mental torture.

Save the Children along with Child Rights Advocacy Coalition, has been advocating with the government Bangladesh to ratify CRC Optional Protocol 3.
