3rd Pan-American Child Forum

3 Foro Panamericano

The III Pan American Forum is part of the Pan American Congress, according to the resolution of the Directing Council (CD / RES. 07 (83-R / 08)). It promotes a re-significance of the current and future reality of each State's childhood and its future democratic projects, since learning to participate is itself an act of democratization.

It rests on the legal framework of the Children's rights convention; the American Convention on Human Rights; the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of man and the Observations and recommendations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child especially on participation.
