International Humanitarian Law and Child Rights Competition, 2019 organized by NALSAR University of Law and UNICEF

by | Feb 15, 2019

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the first international convention on child rights was signed in 1989 and has led to great progress in safeguarding human rights of the children. It has resulted in major changes in laws to ensure better protection for children and has even altered the manner in which international organizations see their work for children. The convention has also resulted in better protection of children in situations of armed conflict. To mark the 30th year of CRC, the National Academy of Legal Studies and Research’s (NALSAR) Centre for Child and Youth Justice, in collaboration with UNCIEF, is organising this competition to encourage students to deliberate on the intersection of International Humanitarian Law and Child Rights.
