Violence against Children- What do NGOs know? What do NGOs say? -11 January 2011

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) sets a unique framework to address violence against children. Article 3 establishes that “in all actions concerning children, (...) the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration”. While taking into account the rights and duties of any individual legally responsible for the child, States Parties undertake to ensure the child such protection and care as is necessary for his or her well-being.
