Although the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has been ratified by many states, the greatest challenge, presently, is that of achieving its implementation. This is confirmed by the prevalence of negative practices limiting the enjoyment of children's rights. It is within this context that this book undertakes its examination of the CRC's implementation in Angola and Mozambique. There is a pressing need to promote the implementation of the Convention in the two jurisdictions and thereby ensure that children enjoy their human rights. Both countries ratified the CRC and committed themselves to its standards; consequently, it is necessary to investigate how they are faring in terms of giving effect to those standards. The book investigates the legislative and policy measures required to give effect the Convention.
