Protection of Child Rights in Myanmar
- “Children‟s rights” are the human rights of children with particular attention to the rights of special protection and care afforded to minors. Convention on the Rights of the Child of 1989 was the first instrument to incorporate the complete range of international human rights. Myanmar ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991 and passed the Child Law in 1993. There are many domestic law related to the protection of child such as Penal Code of 1960, Anti-trafficking in Person Law of 2005 and Myanmar Labor Laws. The 2008 Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar also contains the provisions for the protection of child. In order to ensure the children‟s wellbeing and interest, the State, the parents and the community that surround them have responsibility. An efficient protection is essential to the children‟s wellbeing because, as vulnerable people, they are more exposed to problems of mistreatment, exploitation, discrimination and violence.
