Chapter Summary

The Convention on the Rights of the Child - CRC was carefully drafted over the course of 10 years from 1979 to 1989, starting with a Polish draft which led to the establishment of a working group of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in 1979. This initiative for drafting a convention on the rights of the child ran parallel to three other important developments: The first was the creation of the post of a special advisor to the United Nations for the monitoring of child prostitution, child pornography and child trafficking. The second was the enhanced endeavors of UNICEF and ILO to register with statistical means the infant victims of military conflicts. Finally, there was the move to reframe and focus ILO conventions with the aim to rehabilitate and to educate working children with the assistance of new development programmes.
