Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book titled A Commentary on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 13: The Right to Freedom of Expression, explores the meaning and significance of the freedom of expression as recognized in Article 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The book seeks to do so not only in relation to the CRC itself but also in the overall human rights context in light of jurisprudence and objectives. The entrenchment of children's rights in international law may conduce to a 'culture of child participation' which may be gradually developing although overshadowed by louder and more powerful interests. The CRC marked a decisive shift in the legal concept of the child within international law in its consistent application of a rights-based approach to children's issues.
