Chapter Summary

A variety of international, multilateral instruments pre-dates the CRC and offers a degree of protection to children, at least in principle. However, they tend to be of a general nature lacking in the ‘specificity’ and focus later provided by the CRC and its Protocol. In the aftermath of the CRC, in the early 1990s, the UN Commission on Human Rights established a UN monitor on the issue – the Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. The CRC Article also deserves comparison with the provisions of various regional/sub-regional human rights protection systems. A pertinent reflection concerning multilateral and regional developments is that the world does not lack norms and standards for protection of children from sexual exploitation and sexual abuse. Often what is lacking concerning multilateral and regional developments is their effective implementation, especially at the national and local levels.

Keywords: child pornography; child prostitution; international human rights provisions; multilateral developments; regional/sub-regional developments; sexual exploitation
