International Standards

Concerning the Rights of the Child

no child should be abused

children can meet with anyone they like

Over the last decades a number of international legal

instruments have been adopted in response to the growing concerns throughout the

world to promote and protect the rights of the child.

In order to help all those individuals and organisations

working at the national and local levels for the legal and social defence of

children worldwide, the DCI has compiled below , relevant international

Standards concerning the Rights of the Child.

These legal instruments, elaborated and approved by the

international community, provide valuable guidance on how to modify juridical

and institutional realities so that the rights of the children and adolescents

are protected

Each text is introduced separately to help readers better

understand the legal texts.
