Committee on the Rights of the Child and Government in forward-looking dialogue

Published Updated

The dialogue between the Government of Sweden and the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child in Geneva has now concluded. The Government will continue to advance the rights of the child in cooperation with civil society and other actors.

- The dialogue has been extremely constructive and informative. The Government has high ambitions in the area of child rights and the Committee on the Rights of the Child has high expectations of Sweden. We will take these expectations on board and continue to work with civil society and other actors to ensure that Sweden is one of the very best countries to grow up in, says Pernilla Baralt, State Secretary to Minister for Children, the Elderly and Gender Equality Åsa Regnér, representing the Government in Geneva.

Directly following the dialogue, Ms Baralt is meeting child rights organisations to make an immediate start on further improving the situation of children in Sweden.
