oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Supra-national human rights instruments for the protection of children in Africa: the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child
The African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child was adopted by the Assembly on 11 July 1990. It is quite remarkable that the African states could reach agreement on its contents in so short a period. Africa has clearly taken the lead in becoming the first region to give the global instrument regional application. Unfortunately, some seven years later the Charter is not yet in force, as only six of the required fifteen states have so far ratified it.
