Kurdistan Parliament formally ratifies Child Protection Law

In Kurdistan, the Kurdistan Parliament formally ratified the Child Protection Law on 28 July 2013. This important protection law seeks to improve the lifestyle of Kurdish children.  The long awaited ratification of the treaty, which demands protection of children’s rights, came after a long discussion among Kurdish law makers on Sunday. According to the law, this is the duty of government to enhance citizen’s understanding of child rights, and to deal with child labor that the region is facing.

According to the Peyamner News Agency, each Iraqi governorate is mandated to enforce primary, secondary and high school education to children and their families. This law will enable children in Kurdistan the opportunity to finish high school and prepare for university.
