Chapter Summary

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was adopted unanimously by the United Nations (UN) General assembly in 1989, and is thus a young member of the family of the UN human rights conventions. The CRC established an innovative approach to the rights of the child: For the first time the human rights of the child was expressly recognised in a Convention; it is about empowerment as well as protection. Monitoring of the implementation of the CRC outside the State Party of the CRC is primarily carried out by the CRC Committee through the State Parties reporting to and having dialogue with the Committee. The author work in the CRC Committee has given a more optimistic attitude on the impact of the Convention, but also a more realistic view on new implementation mechanisms or new protocols.

Keywords: CRC; implementation mechanisms; state party; UN human rights conventions
