Chapter Summary

This chapter compares the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) right of non-discrimination with provisions in other international and regional agreements. It mainly concerns with the right of non-discrimination in Article 2(1). The right of non-discrimination in Article 2(1) cannot be authoritatively compared to anything until one has settled on a legal interpretation of the right. Until then, it is important to keep in mind that the terms human rights and the right of non-discrimination have multiple meanings; that support treaties like International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD), and regional treaties like the European Convention on Human Rights, are not, strictly speaking, human rights treaties; and that prohibitions of discrimination are also imposed within some of the sectoral rights, as well as through certain 'equality' provisions.

Keywords: Article 2(1); CERD; CRC; human rights; non-discrimination
