International Documents on Children

Second Revised Edition

Edited by Geraldine van Bueren

The purpose of this collection is to provide, in an easily accessible form, documents on children which have either a regional or a global significance. Both private international law and public international law treaties are included together with recommendations and resolutions adopted by global, regional and intergovernmental organisations. For ease of reference the documents are organised according to subject headings and within each subject grouping or sub-subject grouping the documents are arranged according to both the chronological order and the adopting organisation. In addition, selected child provisions from global and regional human rights instruments are included. This second edition includes a number of important documents which have been concluded since the publication of the first edition. This unique collection constitutes an important tool for all those working in the field of children's rights, and is a valuable companion to Geraldine van Bueren's The International Law on the Rights of the Child (Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1993, ISBN 0-7923-2687-3).

This volume draws upon the author's own experience to highlight the complexities behind the global violations of children's rights. Analysis and description are interwoven to provide a coherent study of the international status of children and the rights which attach to this status, both for those familiar and unfamiliar with international law. The author demonstrates the potential of international law in protecting the rights of children, even in states which are restructuring their economies. To be effective, international law cannot be used in isolation and the text seeks to place the rights of the child in their cultural and historical contexts.
All royalties from The International Law on the Rights of the Child are being donated to the International Save the Children Alliance to assist them in their work with children.
