Monitoring Children's Rights in the Netherlands
30 Years of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
This first volume in the Monitoring Children’s Rights in the Netherlands series pays tribute to the 30th anniversary of the CRC and includes a report on the rights of children in the Netherlands, presenting key facts and figures relating to the rights of children. The report shows that there are significant concerns relating to discrimination, exclusion and disparities in the implementation of children’s rights in the Netherlands.
It also demonstrates that there are reasons for concern with regard to the protection of children against violence, including child abuse and neglect. Children living in poverty are disproportionately affected by this. Moreover, children’s participation rights have increasingly received attention in the past years. At the same time, it is concluded that there are some persistent challenges, among others, in citizenship education, and that it is remarkable that the Dutch government has, as of yet, neither signed nor ratified the Optional Protocol to the Convention on a Communications Procedure.
The book also includes an editorial highlighting the significance of children’s rights monitoring, and an in-depth study on the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its implications for children’s rights.
