Summary The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the most ratified of all the United Nations Human Rights treaties. Adopted by 191 nations, it is a comprehensive treaty covering the child's civil-political, economic-social-cultural, and humanitarian rights. In the over twenty years since the Convention went into force, the Committee on the Rights of the Child (the experts who monitor State Party compliance) has issued its evaluation of the reports of State Parties on their progress in implementing the Convention and their recommendations for future improvements. The Committee's Concluding Observations collectively make up the jurisprudence on child rights. Due to the sheer volume of reports, this information is not easily accessible to scholars and child rights activists. These volumes provide quick access to the Committee's jurisprudence on an article-by-article basis. By dividing the Concluding Observations for each State Party into sections corresponding to specific articles of the Convention, a researcher can identify the exact language of the Committee's comment on a particular article for each state party and can evaluate trends in the Committee interpretation.
