UNCRC Article of the Week (WC: 9th November 2020)

Published on:

This week's article of the week is:

Article 13: I have the right to find out and share information

Everyone has the human right to express themselves, and Article 13 of the UNCRC makes it clear that this includes children and young people. Part of this right of freedom of expression involves being able to find out information for yourself - so you’re able to share it in the way you want.

People can express themselves in all kinds of different ways, and the right to freedom of expression covers them all. These ways include things like:

  • talking out loud,

  • posting things on the internet, and

  • writing things for a book or newspaper.

As other articles of the UNCRC make clear, a child or young person should be able to express themselves regardless of their religion or culture.

People should take special care to make sure that children and young people with disabilities can express themselves. One way they can do this is through making sure information is easy for people with disabilities to read, access and respond to.
