This latest 'Innocenti Essay' outlines the legal and moral stance behind UNICEF's emerging human rights ethic.

LANGUAGES:
The Convention on the Rights of the Child has been variously hailed as ‘the cornerstone of a new moral ethos’ and a ‘milestone in the history of mankind’. But laws and treaties are as nothing without adequate practical follow-up.
