Excerpt
INTRODUCTION The First World Summit for Children was held at the United Nations on 30 September 1990. More than 70 world leaders pledged to fight the hunger, poverty, disease, exploitation, neglect, and illiteracy that afflict children in both developing and industrialized countries. Only one year earlier, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the UN General Assembly. (ISe)ttin g minimum standards of protection for children's survival, health and education, as well as providing explicit protection against exploitation at work, against physical or sexual abuse, and against the degradations of war, the Convention is the first agreement among the nations of the world on the legally-defined rights of the child. As of 20 July 1994, 163 countries have ratified it and 11 other countries have signed but not yet ratified. Article 19 of the Convention states that countries shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s) or any other person who has the care of the child.
