The Convention on the Rights of the Child
The Convention on the Rights of the Child is a universally agreed
set of standards and obligations which place children center-stage
in the quest for a just, respectful and peaceful society.
It spells out the basic human rights for all children, everywhere,
all the time: the right to survival; to develop to the fullest;
to protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; and
to participate fully in family, cultural and social life.
