In 2010, the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) reached the age of 21 and, arguably, "came of age". The CRC was not, however, the first international instrument that attempted to protect the rights of the child: 1924 saw the enactment of one of the first legal instruments to explicitly recognise that children, as human persons, ought to enjoy certain inalienable rights. It was recognised that children are often the first and most severely affected in times of conflict or economic hardship. The 1924 Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child outlined the duty of all nations, and indeed individuals within states, to protect weak, marginalised, or impoverished children.3 The Universal Declaration of Human Rights further highlighted the need to protect the rights of the child re: special care and assistance".
