The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1979, globally the most popular of human rights treaties, requires States Parties to take action to secure the rights of minors. Through contributions by some of those most closely involved, this book tells the story of the UNCRC in Wales. It explains the provisions and practical impact of the ground-breaking Rights of Children and Young Persons (Wales) Measure 2011, the first law within the UK designed to give further effect to the UNCRC. The collection is a major contribution to understanding of the challenges of UNCRC implementation and shows why the Welsh model of incorporation is attracting worldwide interest.
