The Swiss Foundation of the ISS
20 years ago, on February 24 1997, the Swiss State ratified the Convention on the rights of the child!
The Convention on the rights of the child (CRC), which was adopted by the UN General Assembly on November 20 1989, is the most ratified Convention in the world. This international instrument is revolutionary for its recognition of children as actors of society and of their rights.
ISS is pleased to introduce an international document developed by a group of family mediators and experts from all continents. The Charter for International Family Mediation Processes aims to enhance existing national or regional instruments and standards & ethics while adding a set of professional requirements specific to the cross-border context.
The Alliance for the Rights of Migrant Children (ADEM) gathered federal and cantonal authorities, institutions and representatives of NGOs on 10 November in Berne on the theme of harmonizing the care of unaccompanied minors in Switzerland.
