This comprehensive Commentary presents a contemporary legal perspective on the inherently interdisciplinary field of children's rights. Chapters analyse each article of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, along with its Optional Protocols, providing contextualised information on the interpretation and implementation of the children's rights provisions therein. A detailed introduction examines the history of the Convention and places it within the wider landscape of human rights and other disciplinary approaches such as the sociology of childhood. The Commentary critically engages with the text of the Convention, exploring commonly used concepts and defining pertinent terminology. The authors draw on multiple perspectives and refer to disciplines outside of law to enrich the analysis of the articles, their interpretation and the study of children's rights as a discipline. Featuring examples of case law from regional human rights systems this Commentary provides a well-rounded insight into the status of children's rights on a global scale. Written in an accessible style, this Commentary will be a valuable reference work for students, researchers, practitioners and policymakers alike. The Commentary will be of great interest to those working within children's rights law and human rights law. Researchers in politics, sociology and international studies who are seeking further information and insight on the rights of children will also find this Commentary to be a useful point of reference.

'The book offers an extensive analysis of the substantive and procedural provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its three Optional Protocols. The commentary is a timely contribution to the growing field of children's rights from a doctrinal legal perspective. It is strongly recommended to those who are willing to learn more about children's rights law from the international human rights law perspective. It can serve as a practical guide for those who have no or limited specialisation in international children's rights law. At the same time, it contributes significantly to children's rights experts, allowing them to access the most recent case law and legal developments.' -- Betul Durmus, European Yearbook on Human Rights 'This book provides an accessible and insightful guide to the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocols. It offers an important introduction to children's rights-examining theoretical debates, implementation challenges, and opportunities for advancing children's rights. It also will serve as a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners, with its in-depth analysis of each article of the CRC and discussion of the Optional Protocols.' -- Jonathan Todres, Georgia State University, US 'The authors provide a thoroughly researched and very user-friendly guide through the Convention on the Rights of the Child, highlighting the many intersections with other human rights instruments. This volume is destined to become the reference in the field for years to come.' -- Olivier De Schutter, former UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food (2008-2014) and Member of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
