Abstract [en]

On November 1989 the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. Today more than 20 years later the convention is ratified by all countries in the world except the USA. A question asked is however if the convention after 20 years of development work has in fact accomplished some positive effects for children around the world?

 

The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in selected states and to reach this aim some questions need to be answered:

 

  1. What do the selected states do to realize the best interest of the child?
  2. What do the selected states do to guarantee all children’s right to survival and development?
  3. Do all children in the selected states have the same right to health and health services?
  4. Do all children in the selected states have the same right to education?

 

The material studied in this thesis is those reports that are to be sent periodically to the Committee on the Rights of the Child by all states. The result of this study shows that the Convention on the Rights of the Child has made some positive progresses when it comes to the situation of the child in the world. In the selected states of this study the awareness of the Rights of the Children is noticeable and according to the periodic reports the states continue to work and develop the implementation of the convention.
