Children of War


In 1989, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This landmark treaty, now ratified by all but two countries on earth, spells out the rights of all children to health, to education, to an adequate standard of living, to leisure and play, to protection from exploitation, to express their own opinions and many more. All children have these rights.

Do they have these rights? What can be done to make this a reality?
