States had an obligation to ensure that vulnerable children received the rights they were due, the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural) heard on the 10th October as it continued its deliberations on children’s rights.

Four special mandate holders addressed the Committee from various spheres of the international legal machinery dedicated to children’s rights, two of them making an unprecedented joint presentation. Maud de Boer-Buquicchio, Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography, presented a report along with Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, Special Rapporteur on Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children. Their thematic study addressed children’s vulnerabilities to exploitation as they fled armed conflict, natural disaster and humanitarian crisis, and underscored that children were entitled to specific rights in terms of care, recovery and reintegration.

Indeed, the failure of States to protect children entitled to international and national child protection measures “could not be condoned”, said Ms. Giammarinaro. It was imperative to establish significant legal channels for migration, and for Member States to recognize that children victimized by traffickers were entitled to support. Provision of those entitlements required accurate screening of children in places of first arrival, while additional measures must include residence status under anti-trafficking legislation.
