Comparing CRC compliance : the Committee on the Rights of the Child periodic reviews of Norway and Russia
MetadataShow full item record
A comparative analysis of the Committee on the Rights of the Child fourth periodic reviews of Norway and the combined third and fourth periodic review of Russia. Content analysis was used as a tool for the treatment of the texts concerning four categories: 1) independent monitoring; 2) violence against children; 3) abuse and neglect; and 4) sexual exploitation and abuse. The results were then compared with the context provided by other sources covering the subject. The comparison found that the Committee on the Rights of the Child manages to communicate the level of severity and magnitude of the issues it comments, with the exception of category 3. The thesis ends with an argument for the usefulness of the analysis in order to understand how the Committee contributes to strengthened CRC compliance.
