Promotion of human rights

In 2014, the United Nations continued efforts to promote human rights worldwide. The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which allowed individual children to submit complaints regarding specific violations of their rights under the Convention and its first two protocols, entered into force on 14 April, and in November, the General Assembly convened a high-level meeting on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Convention. In other activities, an initiative of the Secretary-General, Human Rights Up Front, aimed at strengthening prevention of serious violations, was beginning to identify potential problems earlier.
