Children’s rights

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is the most complete statement of children’s rights ever produced, and is the most widely agreed international human rights treaty in history.

The UNCRC has 54 articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life and set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to.

It also explains how governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights.
