Chapter Summary

The success of the reporting procedure depends on several interrelated factors, such as (a) the willingness of the governments to fulfill their reporting obligations in an accurate way: i.e. in time and submitting a report of good quality, (b) the quality of the dialogue, (c) the quality of the concluding observations, (d) an accurate follow-up by the States, (e) the independence of the Committee, (f) financial and human resources within the UN Secretariat, and (g) the involvement of NGOs and the media in the reporting process. The Committee also influenced the civil society, mainly through the creation of NGO coalitions and more generally by increasing the NGO involvement in promoting and monitoring children's rights. The chapter concludes that the monitoring system, provided for by the CRC, can, by means of awareness, raising, education and dialogue, be an important tool in the process of realising the rights of the child.
