Children in ASEAN
30 Years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in ASEAN
Thirty years ago, the world united to secure the rights of all children through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). By 1995, all 10 member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) had signed and ratified the CRC, binding themselves to its 54 Articles covering the protection of and respect for a full range of rights for all children. This Report reflects the achievements towards the realization of children’s rights since adoption of the CRC in ASEAN member countries.
