Marking 20 years of UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, this issue of Early Childhood Matters looks at various aspects of how child rights are being realised. It starts with a look at General Comment 7 on implementing child rights in early childhood and an interview with Lothar Krappmann, the Rapporteur of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. Additional articles include contributions from child-focused organisations in India and Brazil, and discussions about child rights in relation to Roma children, the challenges of implementing child rights in emergency situations, the “forgotten article” regarding the right to play, improving child-friendliness of urban environments, improving the education of key professionals, and the development of indicators.
