Chapter Summary

This chapter presents some concluding remarks of the book Age Discrimination and Children's Rights and its chapters. In broader human rights language, a balance as between rights has to be struck, in addition to the striking of a balance as between individual rights-holders. In terms of children's rights, the justification of such treatment should also incorporate reference to the Guiding Principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in order to determine whether the differential treatment satisfies the requirement that it constitutes the important and significant objective of protecting and providing for the child. Such an approach underpins the role of equality law, both national and international, which enshrines the notion that dignity and equality is to be accorded to all human beings.

Keywords: age discrimination; children's rights; differential treatment; equality law
