Implementing the Convention on the Rights of the Child for ‘youth’: who and how?

Implementing the Convention on the Rights of the Child for ‘youth’: who and how? From various perspectives, an ambiguous relationship between the Convention on the Rights of the Child and young persons emerges.

Abstract

From various perspectives, an ambiguous relationship between the Convention on the Rights of the Child and young persons emerges. Given the overlap between the target groups of children’s rights policies and youth policies, the current and potential connections between these two policies are explored, in order to assess whether (further) linking these policies could increase the realization of the rights of young persons. The inquiry is carried out at the international and European level (United Nations, Council of Europe and European Union), on the one hand, and within Flanders (Belgium), on the other. Contrasting results appear, calling for a middle ground in the degree of interconnection between children’s rights policies and youth policies.
