State of the World's Children Report

On 20 November 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. To commemorate this landmark, UNICEF is dedicating a special edition of its flagship report, The State of the World’s Children, to child rights. The report and accompanying video address the progress that has been made in the last 20 years and the role the Convention can fulfill moving forward into the future.
