Children’s Right to Play
A Booklet for a Richer Understanding of Children’s Right to Play
All children have a right to play. This universal right is enshrined in article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
This booklet will help you explore the right to play, demystify the jargon, and take you into a richer understanding of article 31.
The focus is understanding play as a right of children rather than children’s activities.
