Lessons for the future

Lessons for the future

By Dr Liz Curran

Child Welfare Human Rights 


The Royal Commission into Institutional Childhood Abuse laid bare the truth, with a plan for others in the future. Australia’s inquiry into childhood institutional abuse has lessons for other jurisdictions, especially the UK. International human rights provisions for children in institutional care include Article 13 of the Convention on the Rights or the Child (CROC) (1989), alongside protections for children with a disability (CROC Article 23), children in the care and protection system (CROC Article 25) and in youth detention (CROC Article 37). Children’s rights are explicit in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 25) covering historical childhood abuse. The handling of the UK and Australian inquiries provide a stark contrast.
