Abstract

The most realistic hope that the Convention on the Rights of the Child (U.N. General Assembly, 1989) actually will bring about changed conditions and changed behavior is through promoting research, because research is the only enforcement tool provided for in the Convention. Articles 43, 44, and 45 of the Convention invite a collaboration among signatories, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child, and researchers who can help design studies and provide technical assistance. This article examines some of the difficulties that research on this subject will need to consider and overcome if the effort is to succeed.
