UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
The Human Rights Unit is one of the cross-cutting teams located within Programme Division with staff in New York and Geneva. The Unit specifically focuses on State Accountability, particularly on strategic engagement with Human Rights Mechanisms, and capacity building of National Human Rights Institutions to monitor child rights promotion and protection and ensure access to remedies in case of violations.
The Human Rights Unit also provides technical assistance to other HQ sections and divisions as well as Regional/Country Offices to, inter alia, ensure the mainstreaming of human rights across sectors and capacity building on child rights. It also aims at having child rights adequately reflected in policies and strategies developed at global level.
For every child, a hope….
