Summary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The complete text of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, including the Preamble, exceeds 7,400 words.

They frequently misrepresent what the Convention says, so it's essential to double check any supposed 'quote' from the CRC by consulting the official document (PDF): http://www.unhcr.org/refworld/pdfid/3ae6b38f0.pdf The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has a web page version.
