Summary
  • "Protecting the World's Children: Impact of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in Diverse Legal Systems is a review of the ways in which the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has been incorporated into national legislation around the world. It comprises four studies that compare experiences from countries with different types of legal traditions, highlighting common characteristics, developments and trends as a basis for the work of practitioners in this area
  • The book provides examples of ways in which the CRC has been successfully incorporated into diverse legal systems and derives from that experience a framework for improved alignment of national legislation with human rights instruments and with the CRC in particular, taking into account not only the provisions of the CRC but also its underlying principles, such as indivisibility of rights and the importance of partnership in realizing children's rights. As such it provides practitioners with a tool for supporting the legal aspects of implementation of the CRC as a foundation for implementation overall."--Jacket
