The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: Three Essays on the Challenge of Implementation
James R. Himes
The Convention on the Rights of the Child has been variously hailed as â€˜the cornerstone of a new moral ethosâ€™ and a â€˜milestone in the history of mankindâ€™. But laws and treaties are as nothing without adequate practical follow-up. The real results will depend not upon the high-mindedness of the ideals themselves, but upon the action taken to achieve them. This, the â€˜challenge of implementationâ€™, is James R Himesâ€™ weighty subject in the three papers here collected. He answers those who would dismiss the CRC as â€˜another Utopiaâ€™, arguing that with the right policy decisions, the conventionâ€™s initial momentum can be sustained.
