UN Audiovisual Library
- To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Codification Division of the Office of Legal Affairs presents a lecture by Professor Diane Marie Amann on “Child Rights, Conflict, and International Criminal Justice”. After tracing the developments that led to the adoption of the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, Professor Amann describes parallel developments in two fields: international humanitarian law and international criminal law. The lecture further addresses relevant provisions of the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child and other instruments, in particular the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, and assesses efforts made to respect and protect the rights of the child by preventing and punishing crimes committed against children.
- The Audiovisual Library of International Law is also available as a podcast, which can be accessed through the preinstalled applications in Apple or Google devices, through SoundCloud or through the podcast application of your preference by searching “Audiovisual Library of International Law”.
