The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a communications procedure adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2011 was drafted with the objective of strengthening and supplementing the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child.

This Protocol provides an opportunity for children, or their representatives, to establish an individual complaints procedure for specific violations of children's rights under the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its first two Optional Protocols, but only if their national legal systems have not been able to provide them with a remedy against the violation.
