CHILD RIGHTS: CRIN submission to the OHCHR on children's right to an adequate standard of living

This submission aims to contribute a children’s rights­based perspective on discussions at the UN relating to the “protection of the family”. In particular, the submission emphasises that such discussions should not paint the family as an abstract holder of rights needing protection; rather they must explicitly position the family as a social unit with responsibilities to individual family members, and underline States’ obligation to ensure their fulfilment. This, in turn, will reinforce the family unit as an arrangement that must provide care, nurture and development to children in order to realise their right to an adequate standard of living.
