#deepweb | 30 years after the Convention on the Rights of the Child was signed, the IACHR calls on States to renew their commitment to children – World

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Washington, D.C. – On November 20, when the Convention on the Rights of the Child celebrates its 30th anniversary, the IACHR recalls that children still face enormous barriers to the enjoyment of their rights. In this regard, the Commission calls on the OAS member states to renew their commitment to children and adolescents through the implementation of effective national protection systems.

Thirty years ago, the international community came together to take a crucial step in the protection of children around the world, by negotiating and approving a broad regulatory framework that meant a paradigm shift in the matter. It is from the Convention that the States consolidated the recognition of children as holders of their own rights, universally guaranteed, and not as mere objects of protection. Today, the Convention on the Rights of the Child is the human rights treaty with the highest number of ratifications, as it has 196 States Parties, which underlines the universality of its scope.

Although the Commission recognizes the progress achieved during the three decades since the Convention came into force, it also expresses its concern about the deep gap between the rights established therein and the reality in which millions of children live in the region. According to UNICEF, in Latin America alone, 72 million children aged 0 to 14 still live in poverty, 1 in 5 have their physical growth affected by the lack of access to adequate nutrition and 12 million do not attend to school. In addition, almost 25,000 adolescents between 10 and 19 years old are victims of homicide each year in the region and half of those under 15 years of age are subjected to corporal punishment at home.

This scenario requires that the States renew and strengthen their commitment to protect children from any type of violation of their rights. In this regard, the Commission reiterates the need for States to implement national systems that effectively execute special and reinforced public protection policies aimed at guaranteeing the integral development of children, as well as allowing them to live a dignified life and free from all forms of violence.

“The protection of the rights of children requires a joint effort of all social actors, not only at this time of celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Convention, but permanently, with the States occupying a central place in guaranteeing these rights”, said Commissioner Esmeralda Arosemena de Troitiño, President of the IACHR and Rapporteur on the Rights of the Child. “This renewed commitment, which must continue through the years, needs to hear the voice of children who have the right and are increasingly interested in participating in the decisions that affect them”, she added.

The Commission notes that the United States of America is the only country that has not ratified the text of the Convention. In this regard, the IACHR takes this opportunity to urge the State to adopt measures to ratify the treaty for the benefit of more than 70 million children living in the United States.

A principal, autonomous body of the Organization of American States (OAS), the IACHR derives its mandate from the OAS Charter and the American Convention on Human Rights. The Inter-American Commission has a mandate to promote respect for and to defend human rights in the region and acts as a consultative body to the OAS in this area. The Commission is composed of seven independent members who are elected in an individual capacity by the OAS General Assembly and who do not represent their countries of origin or residence.

Pursuit of James Bond Film Rights Kicks Into High Gear

Pursuit of James Bond Film Rights Kicks Into High Gear

The distribution rights to one of the movie industry’s highest-profile franchises are about to be up for grabs, leaving Hollywood shaken and stirred. After “Spectre”—which opened last week overseas and will make its U.S. debut this week —the current deal for Sony Pictures Entertainment to release James Bond movies will expire. Several studios are planning to pursue those rights, according to people familiar with the matter, even though there is surprisingly little profit in releasing Bond films. For the past decade, Sony has distributed the 007 films under a deal with co-owners Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Danjaq LLC, a British company run by the family that has produced 24 of the 26 films in the series since the 1962 original, “Dr. No.” MGM makes movies, but no longer distributes them to theaters, so it needs a major studio partner. All four Bond films released and marketed by Sony have performed well, with 2012’s “Skyfall” grossing $1.1 billion world-wide, the highest ever for the series. But not much of the profit has stayed with the studio, thanks to what Sony’s former movie chief described in an email leaked last year by hackers as “a one-sided deal with MGM.” Sony made just $57 million on “Skyfall,” […]

The New Battleground for Same-Sex Couples Is Equal Rights for Their Kids

When the Supreme Court invalidated same-sex marriage bans in June, the Justices acknowledged they had the kids in mind.

In the majority opinion, Justice Kennedy cited the infringement of the interests of children being raised by same-sex couples as one reason for the Court’s ruling.

Who are these kids? An estimated 220,000 children under the age of 18 are being raised in same-sex families in the United States. Half are nonwhite.

Protecting kids’ rights

My research, scholarship and advocacy efforts have focused on children, particularly black children, for the past 10 years. In an amicus brief filed in Obergefell — the Supreme Court case that ended same-sex marriage bans — my coauthors and I highlighted the legal and economic deprivations children in these families suffer when their parents can’t marry.

Responsiblities of the gaming industry in protecting children’s rights

You’re playing your favourite mobile game – let’s call it Super Duper Zookeeper – when a message pops up inviting you to buy a bundle of ‘gems’ or ‘fruit’ (at a cost of up to £70 per transaction), and spend them ‘Now!!!’ to ‘Unlock The Baby Panda!!!’ You don’t really understand that the gems or fruit cost real money, so you buy several bundles … then several bundles more … and before you know it you’ve got a zoo full of baby pandas on your hands, and a very angry parent.

Rights vs risk for kids online

TodlerTechWhen considering legislation to protect children online, it is important to note that not all online risk results in harm and not all opportunity results in benefit.

This is according to Dr Ellen Helsper, associate professor in media and communications at the London School of Economics. She was speaking at the University of the Witwatersrand’s ‘Wits Internet Week’ in Johannesburg yesterday.

Helsper discussed the outcomes of the EU Kids Onlineresearch project, which has been researching the Internet’s effect on children since 2006. The project particularly looks at children’s online opportunities, risks and safety.

Same Sex Couples In Victoria Closer To Adoption Rights, Catch Up To NSW, WA, ACT

It’s been far too long of a time coming, but Victoria is currently moving a step closer to other Australian states’ same sex adoption rights, with the state government announcing a review of family laws today.

According to The Age, a review will be conducted over the current adoption laws in Victoria, with a proposed change to same-sex couples’ rights potentially being made equal with male-female couples by the middle of the year. The proposed change would mean same-sex couples could adopt children together; at present, a partner in a same-sex relationship cannot officially become a ‘parent’ of their partner’s child, only a legal guardian.
