Successful CRC Colloquium

On 25 and 26 March 2014 the Faculty of Law hosted the second annual Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) Colloquium. At this event a number of local in international child rights experts discussed the important implications of Article 6 of the CRC (the child’s right to life, survival and development). The meeting was the forum for thought-provoking debates surrounding, inter alia, the child’s decision to terminate her life; the State’s responsibilities in providing instruments for (especially early) childhood development; the impact of climate change on children’s rights; and the claim for wrongful life.
