Summary:

At its forty-fourth session, in 1989, the General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child (resolution 44/25). The Convention entered into force on 2 September 1990. At its fifty-fourth session, the Assembly adopted two optional protocols to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (resolution 54/263): one on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography, and one on children in armed conflict. The first protocol entered into force on 18 January 2002 and the second on 12 February 2002.

At its fifty-ninth session, the General Assembly requested the Secretary-General to submit to the Assembly at its sixtieth session: (a) an updated report on the progress achieved in realizing the commitments set out in the document entitled "A world fit for children", and (b) a report on the rights of the child containing information on the status of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the issues addressed in the resolution; requested the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict to continue to submit to the General Assembly and the Commission on Human Rights reports containing relevant, accurate and objective information on the situation of children affected by armed conflict; invited the independent expert for the United Nations study on violence against children to report to the Assembly at its sixtieth session; and invited the Chairman of the Committee on the Rights of the Child to present an oral report on the work of the Committee to the Assembly at its sixtieth session (resolution 59/261).
