United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was adopted by the General Assembly in 1989 and instituted into international law in 1990. It was drafted with the specific purpose of promoting and protecting children's well being across national boundaries. It is a widely recognized human rights treaty across the world, which has been ratified by 193 countries. The United States and Somalia remain the only two UN countries not to have ratified the CRC.
