 Convention on the Rights of the Child
The human rights of children and the standards to which all governments must aspire in realizing these rights for all children, are most concisely and fully articulated in one international human rights treaty: the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
It spells out the basic human rights that children everywhere — without discrimination — have: the right to survival; to develop to the fullest; to protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; and to participate fully in family, cultural and social life.
The Convention is the most universally accepted human rights instrument in history — it has been ratified by every country in the world except two — and therefore uniquely places children centre-stage in the quest for the universal application of human rights.
