The Higher Council for Childhood at the Social Affairs Ministry held a meeting Tuesday to discuss a draft report on the rights of children in Lebanon which will ultimately be referred to the Committee on the Rights of the Child. Lebanon ratified the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991, and per the convention is required to submit reports to the committee every five years. Lebanon presented its third periodical report to the committee in the early 2000s, but has not presented a fourth due to political instability. The combined fourth and fifth (2005-14) report will be presented a few months after the draft has been reviewed and edited.
