Submission opposing the establishment of the ORC in the Department of Women

The SANCRC has learned that it is likely that the ORC will be established in the Presidency. Whilst we welcome this move, we are deeply concerned at the proposed location of the ORC in the Department of Women, Youth and Person’s with Disabilities, as well as the complete lack of transparency and consultation with CSOs, children and others on the most effective location of this all-important structure.

The SANCRC has therefore developed a further submission expressing its concerns about the proposed location and associated risks to the effective systematisation and institutionalization of the ORC, as well as the lack of consultation. Our submissions have been sent to the Presidency as well the Portfolio Committees on Social Development and the Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities.
