Child law and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
On the 1st of January 2020 the UNCRC will be incorporated into Swedish law. According to article 3 of the treaty, every decision and measure taken regarding children must be in the best interest of the child.
The incorporation into Swedish law does not grant children any new rights, as Children’s Rights in Sweden are already based on the treaty. However, the charter of rights will have a higher impact in matters regarding children, as decision-makers will be obligated to apply the treaty.
Our course in children’s rights and the UNCRC will help ensure that your operation and decision-making process is adapted to serve the best interest of the child.
