UNCRC Article of the Week Article of the Week (WC: 15th March 2021)

Published on:

This week's Article of the Week is:

Article 38: I am not allowed to join the army until I am 15.

Article 38 of the UNCRC covers how the rights of children relate to the armed forces.

When people between 15 and 18 sign up to the armed forces, priority should be given to the oldest among them.

Children and young people should never be forced to fight in the armed forces or go to war. This right covers all jobs in a war, so doesn’t just apply to soldiers.
