The Convention - what is it?

If you are under 18, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is about you.

It describes the commitment that your Government has made to recognise your rights.

The Convention is an international law that recognises that children and young people in Scotland have rights.

The Convention has 54 articles. We have not included articles 43 - 54 as these are about how the United Nations checks up on what the Government has done.
