18th Session of the Human Rights Council – UNIVERSAL PERIODIC REVIEW
2nd UPR Report on Aotearoa New Zealand’s Human Rights Performance June 2013

It specifically highlights the lack of human rights recognition for arguably one of the most vulnerable groups in our society, children and young people in the care of the state.
