Leave a country
CRC Article = 10
The right to leave any country, which is recognized in Article 12(2) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966), is not included in the CRC. The CRC does include the right of the child and parents to leave a State Party for the purposes of family reunification, and the right of the child or parents to leave any country for the purposes of contact with a parent or child residing in a different country. The latter right may be made subject to restrictions.

CRC Article = 31
In recognition of the importance of rest and leisure for the child's development, Article 31 of the CRC obligates States Parties to recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure. For the realization of this right, States Parties are required to encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for leisure activity.
Equal opportunities Recreation
Linguistic minority children
CRC Article = 30
A linguistic minority is a group of people within the territory of a State whose language is different from that of the majority. Under Article 30 of the CRC those States Parties in which linguistic minorities exist shall not deny a child belonging to such a minority the right, in community with other members of his or group, to use his or her own language. This right is also recognized in Article 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966). Noteworthy is the standard-setting work of the Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, including the Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities, which was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1993.
