This webinar presented the findings of a study conducted by the IPC-IG, in partnership with UNICEF’s Middle East and North Africa Regional Office (MENARO), which analyses the existing legal frameworks promoting children’s right to social protection in the MENA region. In addition, the extent to which the region’s legal frameworks comply with a human rights-based approach to social protection was discussed. The audience was able to learn more from an in-depth case study on Iraq’s Social Protection Law No. 11 of 2014—one of the most comprehensive laws of its kind in the region—which was presented by a senior officer from Iraq’s Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Jamal Bilal.
