THE TEAM


Children's rights
have gained in greater global visibility through ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and treaty bodies for other instruments are giving increasing
attention to childrenšs rights. In the same vein, human rights mechanisms, including regional ones such as the European Court of Human Rights and the European Committee of Social Rights have become more sensitive to childrenšs rights.

International justice for children discusses the principles of child-friendly justice at international level and examines monitoring mechanisms and current systems of admissibility, determining how easy or difficult it is for children to gain access to them. This publication also identifies the obstacles to be overcome and proposes concrete ways to remove them through specific recommendations to governments, international organisations and monitoring bodies.
