A key indicator of success in this endeavour is the level and sustainability of appropriation of the CRC’s principles in the local polities that have subscribed to its normative framework. In this article, I adopt culture and rights as tools for analysing the contexts, contests, processes and prospects that deﬁ ne such transformation. Keywords culture; rights; children’s rights; cultural legitimacy; CRC 1. Introduction I think children’s rights discourse is ultimately about constructing a culture that ensures the dignity of our young ones.
