ISFL Conference 2014

THEME: Our Children, An Endangered Species

More than ever, in this period of our history, there is widespread concern being expressed about environmental degradation, threats to our ecosystem, nature reserves, wild life, landscape and seascape and the need to preserve historic buildings and natural monuments. But the voices are not so strident with regard to the threat of extinction facing so many of our children, our future generations, on whom rest the hope and burden of sustainable development of our societies.

On November 20, 1989, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. Hailed as the most widely-ratified human rights instrument in international law, it has been celebrated as the most comprehensive international treaty, embodying as it does, civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of children. While the Convention affirms children’s entitlement to rights, it recognizes that children, because of their vulnerability, are entitled to the necessary care and protection that would ensure their development to the fullest potential.

This year, marks the 25th anniversary of the Convention. It is a convenient time for mature reflection on the Convention. This Conference invites family law and related academics and practitioners to examine the progress made in protecting children’s rights, identify the risks to which children remain susceptible and share experiences of innovative laws, practices and policies which seek to advance children’s rights.
