Concluding Observations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child: Slovenia, 26 February 2004 [CRC]

Document sC/C/15/Add.230

20. While a number of NGOs received drafts of the second periodic report for comment, the Committee notes the information that these consultations were not carried out in a systematic manner as the drafts were circulated only to a limited number of organizations and the deadline set for making comments was too short.

21. The Committee encourages the State party to strengthen its cooperation with NGOs and involve NGOs and other sectors of civil society working with and for children more systematically throughout all stages of the implementation of the Convention. The Committee also recommends that the State party support and financially assist NGOs, particularly those that work as service providers and supplement the efforts of the State party, maintaining full respect for their autonomy.
