Submission to the Joint Committee on the Constitutional Amendment on Children

On 13 December 2007, the OCO received an invitation from the Chair of the Joint Committee on the Constitutional Referendum on Children, Mary O’Rourke TD, to make a written submission to the Committee. The Committee’s Orders of Reference include examining the Twenty-Eighth Amendment of the Constitution Bill 2007 and making such recommendations as seem appropriate to the Committee.

In this submission, we returned to the first principles that should underpin change to the Constitution aimed at enhancing children’s rights.
