State of the World’s Children Special Edition: Celebrating 20 Years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, Executive Summary

 

  

On 20 November 2009, the global community celebrates the 20th anniversary of the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the unique document that sets international standards for the care, treatment and protection of all individuals below age 18. To celebrate this landmark, the United Nations Children’s Fund is dedicating a special edition of its flagship  report The State of the World’s Children to examining the Convention’s evolution, progress achieved on child rights, challenges remaining, and actions to be taken to ensure that its promise becomes a reality for all children. On 6 December 2009 UNICEF Bangladesh, together with the Government and Children’s representatives, launched the report and an exhibition of the drawings and quotes from children on the status of their rights in Bangladesh.
