The Human Rights Council is a subsidiary body of the General Assembly of the United Nations, in charge of promoting worldwide the respect and protection of the rights of every man without any discrimination. Is scrutinizes human rights violations, specifically those flagrant and systematic in character. The Council holds meetings throughout the year in order to face and discuss fundamental topics related to human rights protection, mainly with regard to some specific contexts. In 2018 Italy, which had already been member of the Council twice, has been reelected and will be a member until 2021. At the time of its candidacy, Italy presented a document of commitments - entitled "2019-2021, Italy for the Human Rights Council Human rights for peace" - in which a series of priority themes were listed. Among them, a focus on "children's rights" was included. Starting from this circumstance, the aim of this paper is to scrutinize the recent action of the Human Rights Council dealing with children's rights.
