"UN Child Rights treaty 20 years on: Implementation still not satisfactory" says Commissioner Hammarberg

Realising children’s rights requires more than rhetoric – systematic and concrete actions are now needed
[16/11/09] The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has become one of the most well-known and broadly supported international human rights treaties. Practically all the states in the world have ratified it and thereby legally bound themselves to implement its provisions. As a result, the situation of children has been put higher on the political agenda. Yet, the actual implementation of the Convention has been less effective than we anticipated. The main reason is the absence of a systematic, comprehensive approach to children’s rights as a political priority.
