All our children Bibliography

November 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Howard League has championed the Convention rights of children in conflict with the law over the last three decades through our legal and policy work.

Along landmark cases, our lawyers use rights-based arguments every day to try to improve children’s experiences and address abuse.

A culture of children’s rights needs to be embedded throughout the justice system in order to prevent breaches of children’s rights.

This briefing explores some of the ways in which the Howard League has worked to bring the Convention rights to life for children affected by the criminal justice system.
