WHAT DO WE PROMOTE?

Convention on the Rights of the Child

The Convention on the Rights of the Child obliges the signatory states to respect and ensure the rights of the child guaranteed by the Convention. In addition, it obliges them to ensure that the national legislation corresponds to the rights confirmed by the Convention. Everyone below the age of 18 years is a child. 

Brochures on the rights of children

All of our brochures can be downloaded, printed and distributed freely. The brochure Do you know about the human rights of children? is available in English in electronic format.

Optional Protocols

Three Optional Protocols strengthen the Convention on the Rights of the Child: Protecting children in armed conflict, Protecting children from sale, and Allowing children to submit complaints, appeals and petitions.

UN Committee on the Rights of the Child

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child monitors the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by the signatory states. The Committee issues general comments to support the implementation. 

General comments of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child
