The Convention on the Rights of the child

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC or CRC) includes international recognition that the world's children need special protection beyond adults. It confirms that children are autonomous individuals with full and independent rights regardless of the rights of adults. All those involved in the affairs of children should make every effort to implement the Convention. This refers to the government, parents, schools and all others who work with children or for children.
