Chapter Summary

Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) encompasses different but closely related specific rights recognized to children: a) the right to rest; b) the right to leisure; c) the right to play and recreation; and d) the right to participate freely in cultural life and the arts. Regional instruments, such as the European Social Charter and the Arab Charter on Human Rights do recognize the right to rest, but not the right to leisure. The right to participate freely in cultural life and the arts is also anchored in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Keywords: Arab Charter; CRC; Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)
