UK legislative framework
United Nations Convention on
the Rights of the Child
First legally binding international instrument to incorporate the full range of human rights—civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights.
In 1989, world leaders decided that children needed a special convention just for them because people under 18 years old often need special care and protection that adults do not.
The Convention sets out these rights in 54 articles and two Optional Protocols. It spells out the basic human rights that children everywhere have: the right to survival; to develop to the fullest; to protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; and to participate fully in family, cultural and social life.
The four core principles of the Convention are non-discrimination; devotion to the best interests of the child; the right to life, survival and development; and respect for the views of the child.
The Convention protects children's rights by setting standards in health care; education; and legal, civil and social services.
All children have the right to be protected from all forms of physical and mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse
(UNCRC 1989, Article 19)
The UNCRC Convention on the Rights of the Child ensures that every child has equal rights.
The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has declared the Convention to be the document governing human rights minimum standards for children.
By agreeing to undertake the obligations of the Convention (by ratifying or acceding to it), national governments have committed themselves to protecting and ensuring children's rights and they have agreed to hold themselves accountable for this commitment before the international community.
States parties to the Convention are obliged to develop and undertake all actions and policies in the light of the best interests of the child.
