The year 2017 gave the Civil Society Coalition on the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CSC-CRC) opportunities to engage with different stakeholders from the international, regional, national, and community levels, and to advocate for the protection of children’s rights. CSC-CRC issued position statements on important child rights issues currently happening in the country (i.e., against the of lowering the minimum age of criminal responsibility (MACR) and  outcry against children killed by the police during anti-drug operations) and submitted specific recommendations on ten child rights concerns (i.e., SOGIE-based bullying, corporal punishment, child trafficking, online child protection, children in situations of armed conflict, quality, accessible, and affordable education for marginalized children, child malnutrition, and early pregnancy)  in its report to the Human Rights Council (HRC) in relation to the 3rd Universal Periodic Review of the Philippines.
