En el ultimo volumen de la revista Journal of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (Vol. 28, 2015, pp.285-307), se publicó un comentario de Andrea Young titulado “Advances in Children's Rights over the Past Decade: The Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Human Rights' Progressive Incorporation of the Convention on the Rights of Children”. Este es un extracto de la introducción del comentario:
“Both the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) view their respective conventions as living documents that adapt with the changing times. Because of this, the two courts commonly reference the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in cases where children's rights are implicated and, over the past decade, the courts' case law has provided enforcement to the otherwise unenforceable CRC, advancing the rights of children in both regions of the globe. While there is still much to be done in the way of promoting, improving, and enforcing children's rights, the courts' enforcement and recognition over the past decade has attempted to bring member state compliance in line with modern views of the particularly damaging effects of the denial of human rights to children, a notably vulnerable group within any society.”
