Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the different elements of Article 4. It first compares the CRC to the CCPR and the CESCR. The chapter presents a brief overview of the drafting history of Article 4, followed by a short description of the reporting guidelines by the CRC Committee in relation to the provision. It provides a discussion regarding legislative and other measures, resources, international co-operation and foreign debt, reservations and limitations on rights. The two International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and their interpretation help to understand the nature of States Parties' obligations under the CRC. The drafting history of the CRC helps to explain how and why the particular formula of Article 4 came about, including in relation to both economic, social and cultural rights, and international co-operation.
