The development of the human rights framework in place today can be charted back to the creation of the United Nations (UN) following the Second World War. The system of treaties gives formal recognition to certain rights for all human beings that states have a duty to uphold and protect. Children fall within the bounds of all human rights treaties but, because of their unique biological, economic and social dependency, children need extra care and protection and these are enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
