New report on implementing the Children’s Rights Convention

British Institute of Human Rights welcomes new report on implementing the Children’s Rights Convention


To mark International Children’s Day on 20 November 2012, UNICEF UK has published research on the implementation of the Children’s Rights Convention in twelve countries beyond the UK. Produced by a research team at Queen’s University Belfast, this report compiles evidence on the most effective, practical and impactful ways of embedding children’s rights into domestic law and policy development processes.


Stephen Bowen, Director of the British Institute of Human Rights, said:

“I was delighted to sit on the Advisory Board for this valuable research project. The variety of countries featured in the report show numerous creative ways for implementing children’s human rights. At a time when domestic debates about human rights in the UK are so contested this research is a timely reminder that rather than backtracking on the Human Rights Act we should be looking to progress human rights protection.”
