Coram International are acting as consultants for UNICEF Iraq to review and propose amendments to the draft Child Protection Law in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The proposed amendments aim to bring the law in line with international standards on children’s rights and fill in the gaps in the existing legal framework, particularly in the areas of child protection and child justice. Particular attention will be paid to ensuring that the provisions comply with the federal and regional legal, policy and institutional frameworks and broader context on the situation of children’s rights. The amendments will be consulted upon with national stakeholders including the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs of the Kurdistan Regional Government, which is leading the drafting process. If adopted, the amendments would significantly strengthen the legal protections for children in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The legal amendments contemplate the development of regulations to elaborate key provisions of the law, in line with international child rights standards.
