Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the convention on the rights of the child adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 20 November 1989. It describes 54 articles agreed by the States Parties to the present Convention. The States Parties agreed upon the articles by considering that, in accordance with the principles proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. The States Parties recognize that the United Nations has proclaimed and agreed that everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth therein, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
