Child rights are discussed and debated intensely across the globe over a period of time. The states have adopted special codes or laws on the legal status of the child. Practically, the states have many common futures reflecting the contents of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). In the present times, the child rights are most commonly understood from the point of view of children’s autonomy. It establishes that children should have the capacity and opportunity to determine their welfare and their right should be treated rather more like adults. Children have a right to have a say in processes affecting their lives, welfare and progress. Scholars have identified the various factors associated with child rights protection such as poverty, ill health etc. The child rights need to be examined by the scholars, jurists and other stakeholders in the right perspective in order to make life worth living for children and liberate them from all oppressive features and forces. The Convention on the Rights of the Child is to be understood, interpreted and implemented in the context of all existing international norms in the field of human rights, including customary contractual, universal or regional norms. All the rights of the child are of equal importance. All the rights of the child set forth in the Convention should be respected and ensured by states for each child within their jurisdiction (irrespective of citizenship) without discrimination of any kind on the grounds of race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status. The list is merely indicative and no other grounds may justify any sort of discrimination.
