On 6 June, the HRLC hosted an international conference ‘Advancing Child Rights Strategic Litigation: Ways Forward’ as part of the Advancing Child Rights Strategic Litigation project. This event marked the end of the ACRiSL three-year global research collaboration. Led by the HRLC’s Professor Aoife Nolan, this project has brought together partners from advocacy and academia to work on child rights strategic litigation.
During the workshop, sessions focused on key themes addressed by the work done throughout the life of the project. ACRiSL Network members and other participants, discussed lessons learned and ways to bring this work forward beyond the life of the project. Featuring expert speakers, including children and young people with lived experience of CRSL and members of the ACRiSL Child and Youth Advisory Group, from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, discussion explored a range of issues in CRSL work, including bringing a child rights lens to bear on strategic litigation practice, putting children’s rights at the heart of climate justice, supporting participation in child rights strategic litigation, pushing the boundaries of CRSL on migration, and pushing forward a community of practice in CRSL.
