INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN´S RIGHTS DAY





Today all the countries around the world celebrate the International Children´s Rights Day. On the 20th of November of 1989 the Convention on Children´s Rights was celebrated.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is an international human rights treaty
about young people. The convention is made up of 41 articles about the rights of young people, one article about public awareness and education, and 12 articles on how to monitor, ratify, and enforce the convention. The Convention on the Rights of the Child has been adopted by more countries than any other international human rights treaty. By January 1996, 187 countries had signed or ratified it.
