Chapter Summary

The CRC includes civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights in one document. Parts of Article 4 are therefore similar to the wording of those in international treaties covering either set of rights in relation to the nature of State obligations. The international instruments covered in this chapter are: the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (CCPR), the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR), the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT), the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD), and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). The chapter discusses provisions in the regional instruments of the Inter- American, African and European systems related to Article 4 of the CRC.

Keywords: Article 4; CAT; CCPR; CEDAW; CERD; CESCR; CRC; international instruments
