In spite of the fact that almost all countries have signed and ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child, children who live and work on the streets or in commercial situations at young ages are subjected to gross injustice, and are frequently neglected by national law.;This text is a one-stop guide both for experienced advocates and for non-specialists in the field, which explains how to use regional and international treaties and mechanisms for the protection and defence of street and working children when national law fails.;The second half of the 20th century has seen the emergence of a range of human rights treaties together with permanent monitoring systems established by the UN. While these are imperfect tools, they can be useful in supporting national campaigns, and creating pressure for legislative reform or an end to particular violations.;The manual is divided into three sections. The first section defines substantive rights - survival, fair treatment, and empowerment. The second provides practical guidelines on how to use regional and international human rights systems such as the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, or the UN Committee on Torture. The last section contains a list of human rights documents with tables by country, detailing the status and the stage in the implementation process of each Convention.
