    The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is having its 30th anniversary this year. The CRC has spurred positive developments in law, policy, and practices in dozens of countries. It has also helped forge a shift in how children be perceived by insisting that they are recognized as individuals with rights and agency and not merely objects subsumed within the family. Despite these significant developments and improvements in child well-being indicators in many countries, children continue to confront violations of their rights. Rigorous research is needed to better understand the content of children’s rights law, to ensure more effective implementation, and to account fully for the unique, developmental nature of childhood. This program seeks to identify critical issues confronting children’s rights and to explore new ideas, perspectives, and methodologies that can help ensure that the vision of the CRC is realized.
