The State of the World's Children 2010

Special Edition - Celebrating 20 Years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child

On 20 November 2009, the global community celebrates the 20th anniversary of the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the unique document that sets international standards for the care, treatment and protection of all individuals below age 18. To celebrate this landmark, the United Nations Children’s Fund is dedicating a special edition of its flagship report The State of the World’s Children to examining the Convention’s evolution, progress achieved on child rights, challenges remaining, and actions to be taken to ensure that its promise becomes a reality for all children.

As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, the Convention on the Rights of the Child stands at a pivotal moment. Despite its pervasive influence and the many achievements in child rights that have resulted since its adoption, hundreds of millions of children still remain excluded from the essential services and care, protection and participation that are their right.
