AbductionIRC site CRC = 35 1
Note: The right of the child to protection against abduction is set forth in Article 35 of the CRC. States Parties are required to take all appropriate national, bilateral and multilateral measures to prevent the abduction of children for any purpose or in any form. The abduction of children is to be distinguished from the illicit transfer and non-return of children abroad (see Article 11 of the CRC). The abduction of children within one country or across frontiers for the purposes of, for example, economic exploitation, sexual exploitation, sale, trafficking or adoption is a form of exploitation. The illicit transfer and non-return of children abroad refers to the problem of the abduction of children across frontiers by one of their parents.

Except for obvious exceptions, such as the "Right to life" and the "Right to be heard", the terms in the
Glossary are not formulated as rights. Under each term, however, the article of the Convention dealing
with the corresponding right of the child is mentioned, if appropriate ("CRC:"), and a short description
is given of the corresponding obligations of States Parties ("Note:"), followed by a listing of related terms
in the Glossary ("See also:") linked to the Thesaurus descriptors. Certain terms have also been included as
"lead-in" terms only to preferred synonyms. For instance, the reader searching under the term "Handicapped
children", will be referred ("See:") to "Disabled children".
