Two key anniversaries will soon be celebrated in the international human rights system. Both the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACRWC) will be marking their 25th anniversaries on 20 November 2014 and 11 July 2015 respectively. The anniversaries of these treaties are signifi cant as they both marked a turning point in how children were perceived within international and regional human rights frameworks.
