We are delighted to announce our new pro bono partnership with UNICEF. With UNICEF as our partner, we can contribute towards meeting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and help children survive and fulfil their potential.

UNICEF is the world's leading organisation for children, no matter who they are or where they live. To protect the rights of every child, UNICEF brings together more than 70 years of field-tested expertise, a network that spans more than 190 countries and territories, a passion for innovation, and a commitment to make every dollar count.

The partnership with UNICEF the Netherlands focusses on child rights issues. Therefore De Brauw is committed to provide ongoing pro bono legal advice and guidance on several projects that contribute to the enhancement of childrens rights. In that perspective De Brauw has been involved in several legal matters, from the Dutch government's duties regarding youth care, to the issue of domestic violence and child abuse in the Dutch Caribbean.
