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

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on 20 November 2009, UNICEF is dedicating a special edition of its flagship publication The State of the World’s Children to child rights. The report broadly assesses the Convention’s impact on children’s well-being and human development during the past two decades, addresses the critical challenges for the next 20 years and outlines an agenda for action to ensure the Convention’s promise becomes a reality for every child.
