Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of part 3 of the book undertakes a comparative study, based on the relevant UN documentation, on the ways that Muslim legal traditions impact the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (the CRC or the Convention) by Muslim states. It draws a dividing line between effects of personal (family) Muslim legal traditions and public Muslim legal traditions on rights of the child. The CRC, which came into force more than seventeen years ago, is the most universally accepted human rights treaty. The Committee on the Rights of the Child is the body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the CRC by its states parties. It also monitors implementation of two optional protocols to the Convention, child prostitution and child pornography. The chapter presents an overview of how other chapters of the part are organised.

Keywords: CRC; human rights treaty; Muslim legal traditions
