The 22nd Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 31 July – 6 August, 1983 in Göteborg, Sweden:

WILPF asks every section to urge its government to contribute in all ways for the conversion of the Declaration of Children’s Rights to a Convention.

For our children, especially for those in countries suffering from war, poverty, hunger and suppression, it is of utmost importance that the representatives of the UN Committee on Human Rights work with this issue to get an immediate result.
