A World of Difference: 25 CRC achievements



The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the most rapidly and widely ratified international human rights treaty in history. The Convention changed the way children are viewed and treated – i.e., as human beings with a distinct set of rights instead of as passive objects of care and charity.


The unprecedented acceptance of the Convention clearly shows a wide global commitment to advancing children’s rights. 

In every region of the world, from Brazil to Burkina Faso, Finland to Fiji, Madagascar to Mexico, the Convention has inspired changes in laws and practice that have improved the lives of millions of children.

There is much to celebrate as we mark the 25th anniversary of the Convention, from declining infant mortality to rising school enrolment, but this historic milestone must also serve as an urgent reminder that much remains to be done. Too many children still do not enjoy their full rights on par with their peers.

Business as usual is not enough to make the vision of the Convention a reality for all children. The world needs new ideas and approaches, and the Convention must become a guiding document for every human being in every nation.
