This regional situation analysis, which is guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), explores the violation of child rights in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The study covers 14 countries in the MENA region: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, and the United Arab Emirates. This study concentrates on strengthening civil society organisations to be able to identify gaps in ensuring child rights in the region, report child rights violations, and take action to raise awareness and advocate for the fulfilment of these children's rights. The nature and extent of child protection issues varies country to country, and includes issues such as violence against children – whether at homes, schools or institutional settings – harmful practices, particularly female genital mutilation and early marriage, juvenile justice, exploitative child labour, and birth registration.
