1. Youth Policy Governance

1.2 National youth law

There is no specific national youth law in Ireland.

Ireland signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) in 1992. The UNCRC is an international agreement that lists the rights of children and young people under the age of 18. This Convention has 41 articles and because Ireland signed and ratified this Convention, the Government must be assessed on how well they implement it.
