NGO Shadow Reports on States Parties to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child

The Holy See and the Convention on the Rights of the Child: A Shadow Report

2002, 46 pp. 
After CFC presented a preliminary report on the worldwide problem of sexual abuse of children and adolescents by Catholic clergy and religious to the Committee on the Rights of the Child at the UN, the Committee invited CFC to develop this report to details the Holy See’s compliance as a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The report delineates how the Holy See is skirting the Convention and what action steps need to be taken immediately. See also the executive summary.
