Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD) expects a quick agreement between the Union and the SPD to anchor children's rights in the Basic Law.

"There will soon be a high-level meeting of the government, parliamentary groups and the coalition parties at which we want to finally lash an agreement," said Lambrecht of the "Rheinische Post". Resistance on the part of the Union is inexplicable, after all, the project is expressly in the coalition agreement.

"Children's rights are particularly important for better protection of children against sexual abuse." If these rights were more visible, this would mean that in such cases the children would really be heard at all levels and that the needs of the child victims would be better served said Lambrecht. “We could make millions of children more alert and heard by making their rights more prominent. 30 years after the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, it is high time for it.
