Treatment of convicted children
CRC Article = 40(1)
The right of the convicted child to appropriate treatment is recognized in Article 40(1) of the CRC. States Parties are required to ensure that such a child is treated in a manner consistent with the promotion of the child's sense of dignity and worth, which reinforces the child's respect for the human rights and fundamental freedoms of others, and which takes into account the child's age and the desirability of promoting the child's reintegration and the child's assuming a constructive role in society.
