Book chapter

UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. Continued Reflections on Family Law Issues in the Jurisprudence of the CRC Committee: The Convention on the Rights of the Child @ 30

P. 337-363.
Khazova Olga, Mezmur B. D.

This chapter continues a discussion of the jurisprudence of the CRC Committee dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Part 1, published in the 2019 International Survey of Family Law, addressed the jurisprudence of the CRC Committee on the concept of family, non-discrimination, parental equality, parental rights, child marriage, polygamy and children born through surrogacy arrangements. Part 2 situates the more recent jurisprudence of the CRC Committee respecting child rights issues with significant implications for family law, and offers an analysis identifying progress in both conceptualisation and practice, as well as highlighting the potential challenges that remain for further investigation and clarification. This chapter therefore focuses on the issues related to children’s rights in case of parental divorce or separation, child removal from the family, adoption, childhood statelessness and the rights of children in the context of international migration, including correlation between adoption and kafalah. This chapter continues a discussion of the jurisprudence of the CRC Committee dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Part 1, published in the 2019 International Survey of Family Law, addressed the jurisprudence of the CRC Committee on the concept of family, non-discrimination, parental equality, parental rights, child marriage, polygamy and children born through surrogacy arrangements.
