Let's stand united for the wellbeing of the children!
The 8th Bursa International Children's Rights Film Festival (ICRFF) starts...
This year is the 30th anniversary of the Children’s Rights Convention (CRC) and Turkey is one of the original signatories. The CRC, as the most widely ratified human rights treaty, is strongly guiding the EU policy on the rights of the child internally and externally. To protect children from all forms of violence, the EU works towards building strong child protection systems that address the wide spectrum on risk factors.
This year at ICRFF, the emphasis is on Art. 8 which protects children's right to preserve their identity, including their nationality, name and family relations, without unlawful interference. In addition, States are required to help children regain any aspect of their identity that has been taken away from them illegally.
The ICRFF takes place between 12-19 April 2019 in Bursa.
