On November 20, 1989, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. Hailed as the most widely-ratified human rights instrument in international law, it has been celebrated as the most comprehensive international treaty, embodying as it does, civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of children. While the Convention affirms children’s entitlement to rights, it recognizes that children, because of their vulnerability, are entitled to the necessary care and protection that would ensure their development to the fullest potential.
