The Conference on Legislative Reform to Achieve Human Rights was part of the joint effort of UNICEF and its partners to promote the adoption of legislative and policy frameworks that comply with international standards and serve as a basis for promoting democratic governance and achieving the Millennium Development Goals within the context of the Millennium Declaration—particularly concerning the rights of children and women worldwide.
The Conference drew upon existing experience in a range of contexts to shed light on how international and regional human rights instruments can be implemented and enforced through national legislation so that they can become a reality for children in all countries, taking into account different approaches to legislative reform in different legal systems and country contexts. The conference report also includes a number of case studies.
