“The challenge of providing adequate food, shelter, health care, and education for those living in poverty throughout the world is formidable. More than a billion people live in extreme poverty. The situation of children in many countries is critical as a result of poverty, armed conflicts, displacement, and economic and sexual exploitation. National and international mechanisms and programs for the defense and protection of children should be strengthened in line with the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which has been ratified by almost every country in the world.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child is just one of the major advances that have been made in the legislative and normative field since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.”

by Mary Robinson President of Ireland (1990–97) and United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997–2002). Excerpts from Children and Human Rights article.
