Religious minority children
CRC Article = 30
A religious minority is a group of people of common religion or belief in minority within the territory of a State. Under Article 30 of the CRC those States Parties in which religious minorities exist shall not deny a child belonging to such a minority the right, in community with other members of his or her group, to profess and practise his or her own religion. 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.

States Parties to the CRC are required to submit to the Committee on the Rights of the Child reports on the measures they have adopted which give effect to the rights recognized in the CRC and on the progress made on the enjoyment of those rights, within two years of the entry into force of the CRC for the State Party concerned, and thereafter every five years.

Article 2(1)(d) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969) defines a reservation as "a unilateral statement, however phrased or named, made by a state, when signing, ratifying, accepting, approving or acceding to a treaty, whereby it purports to exclude or modify the legal effect of certain provisions of the treaty in their application to that state". Reservations must be distinguished from other statements made with regard to a treaty that are not intended to have the legal effect of a reservation, such as understandings, political statements and interpretative declarations. Most treaties declare their positions as regards reservations. Some specify that reservations are possible with regard to certain provisions only, while others prohibit altogether any reservations. The CRC provides in Article 51 that reservations may be made by States at the time of ratification or accession, and shall be received and circulated to all States by the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Reservations incompatible with the object and purpose of the CRC shall not be permitted. The rules of international treaty law concerning reservations are set forth in Articles 19 to 23 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969).
