International Conference 25 Years CRC
Leiden Law School Leiden University The Netherlands
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is the most extensively ratified human rights treaty in the world.
Within a year after its adoption by the General Assembly on 20 November 1989, such a substantial number of States had acceded to the CRC, that it could enter into force before its first birthday.
The CRC's 25th anniversary presents a unique opportunity to take stock of the impact it has had and to provide a platform for reflection about the future of children’s rights implementation.
