This publication is part of a series released by UNICEF in promotion of the celebration of 25 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). In this publication, Irina Bokova, the Director-General of UNESCO for Bulgaria, shares both the accomplishments and challenges of 25 years of the CRC.
Bokova emphasizes the continued issue of education for children caught in conflict situations. Children’s right to education, she writes, has become a security issue. “The best and most enduring way to combat extremism is to combat the ignorance that nurtures it.”
