The 48th Session of the Committee against Torture will take place from 7 May to 1 June 2012.
Opportunities for child rights advocates
In addition to providing information on upcoming reviews by the Committee on the Rights of the Child (and indeed on the subsequent Concluding Observations issued), CRIN encourages children's rights advocates to use the full range of opportunities within the UN and regional human rights mechanisms to pursue children's rights advocacy.
Reporting to treaty bodies beyond the Committee on the Rights of the Child presents an opportunity for advocates to raise and press home children's rights issues.

The following States will be reviewed by the Committee against Torture on the progress they have made in implementing the provisions of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT):
- Czech Republic
Deadline for report submissions
NGOs can submit reports to the Committee prior to the reviews of the above States.
The written information submitted by NGOs or NHRIs to the Committee for the examination of the State party's report, must be received no later than two weeks before the opening of the session. The Committee will not accept any written information after this deadline.
