Two-Day International Conference on Protection of Children Rights: Problems and Prospects on 3 & 4 March, 2019 @ Saveetha school of law, Chennai

Two-Day International Conference on Protection of Children Rights

About the conference:

All Children have rights. Children’s rights are human rights for children.

They flow most comprehensively and directly from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) (among other human rights treaties).

The CRC, which can be termed as a Bill of Rights for Children, is a global treaty providing for a wide variety of rights embracing standards in health care, education, work, adoption, development participation and many others.

As the most successful human rights treaty ever to be adopted by the United Nations on the situation of children, the CRC provides for survival rights, protection rights, participation rights and rights against exploitation for all who are below 18 years of age.

The need to protect the rights of children can hardly be emphasized.

It is necessary to do so intrinsically, but also to contribute to the creation of strong and flourishing societies. Protecting their rights is also a legal obligation imposed on all Countries of the world (except two who have not ratified UNCRC).

India is one of the Countries which have paid a great deal of legal and policy attention to the rights of children based on (among others) her Constitutional Commitments.

There have been a number of laws/policy interventions seeking to protect the rights of Indian children in various areas of their life and experience. However, their ambit of protection and realization are a matter of debate.

The fact that India is also a country with thousands and thousands of underprivileged children also needs to be kept in mind when we think of the implementation aspects of the child-related laws. It is in this context that the Department of Criminal Law and Human Rights of the Saveetha School of Law is organizing this International Conference on Child rights.

This Conference seeks to examine and evaluate all Indian laws and policies on the situation of children with a view to find out the schisms between international principles, Indian Laws and the state of Indian children.

It is also meant to explore the ways and means of enhancing their rights going forward to ensure a better living environment for children everywhere.
