Lots of Human rights treaties refer to Child Protection and Child Rights and are of their provisions apply to children. However, it was felt that children needed a separate convention and a clear definition of children’s legal rights under international law. The rights of child are such a broad topic that neither time nor space will permit to do full justice to the topic. This paper, therefore, shall limit itself to examining briefly how child rights have evolved over the years within the international community, and how all developments related to child issues were codified in a Comprehensive Universal Documents - the CRC, and it is to be implemented to national, regional and global levels thereby providing the protection to the rights of child.
