Key developments have taken place, both nationally and internationally, relating to child rights. A marked change in traditional thinking about child rights was promoted by the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989. 20 November 2014 marked 25 years of the adoption ofthe UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the emergence of a different perspective on providing justice to children. This, the fully revised third edition of Child Rights in India: Law, Policy, and Practice, highlights the key developments that have taken place to promote and protect the rights of children. Since the publication of the last edition in 2005, there have been several legislations, progressive courtjudgments, and policy initiatives in India and other countries on the rights-based approach.
