12 II. Current Questions (and Problems) of Children‘s Rights 1. Generell and basic problems:  Many formulations of the CRC are the lowest common denominator, correspondingly vague and open to different interpretations.  In particular, the participation and decision rights of the child (eg in terms of future- related issues), are not clearly defined.  The debate about children's rights is primarily conducted by experts, while the? Awareness of children's rights issues in the public still rather weak? pronounced.  Children's rights are rarely subject to the politics of the day (it can be just a few VoteS win).  Children's rights violations usually draw no consequences.

13 2. Problem-specific fields of violating children’s rights : Child abuse Genital Mutilation Child Soldiers Child labour Poverty Child Trafficing (Prostitution) II. Current Questions (and Problems) of Children‘s Rights

14 II. Aktuelle Fragen (und Probleme) der Kinderrechte 2. problem-specific fields / areas of violation of Children‘s Rights: Current data:  Worldwide more than 6 million children die of hunger every year - more than ever before in the history of mankind. (→ Connection between Western consumerisms and impoverishment in the South)  Alone in the OECD countries, 3,500 children die each year from the effects of abuse, maltreatment and neglect.  The number of murdered children and adolescents on the world is estimated 70,000 for 2007.  In sub-Saharan Africa + the Middle East over 3 million Girls are circumcised each year.

15  Approx. 150 million girls and 73 million boys under 18 years of age are forced to sexual intercourse, about 1.8 million into prostitution. (→ The "market“ for child prostitution & -pornography worldwide makes about 12 billion U.S. dollars sales per year = third largest (illegal) market after the markets for weapons and drugs!)  Nearly 6 million children live in bonded labor (child slaves), 150 Million children between 5 and 14 years are forced to work. II. Aktuelle Fragen (und Probleme) der Kinderrechte  More than 100 million children worldwide are not in school (2/3 of them live in countries shaken by conflicts and crises, mainly in Africa and Asia)  More than 100 million children (homeless) street children. (Metropolises!) 2. problem-specific fields / areas of violation of Children‘s Rights: More examples:

18 3. Fakten und Zahlen zur Situation in Deutschland: Kinderarmut 2,6 Millionen Kinder leben auf Sozialhilfeniveau (fast jedes sechste Kind!). Gefährdet sind insbesondere Kinder von Alleinerziehenden sowie von Ausländern.  Knapp 80.000 Jugendliche gehen jährlich ohne Abschluss von der Schule ab (hoher Anteil an Migrantenkindern).  Flüchtlingskinder haben nur eingeschränkt Zugang zu ärztlicher Behandlung; Schul- besuch oder Beginn einer Berufsausbildung werden erschwert.  Rund 150.000 Kinder unter 15 werden von ihren Eltern körperlich misshandelt; jede Woche sterben 2 Kinder an den Folgen von Misshandlung und Vernachlässigung.  Deutschland ist blühender Markt für internationale Kinderhändler und Kinderporno- grafie. (Geschätzte 50.000 regelmäßige Konsumenten!)  Investitionen in das Wohl des Kindes haben – entgegen der Grundregel nach Art. 3 der UN-Konvention – keinen Vorrang! Im Bereich der Investitionen in frühkindliche Bildung ist Deutschland Schlusslicht unter 21 Industrieländern.  Bis zu 2.500 Minderjährige leben zumindest teilweise auf der Straße. II.

19 4. UNICEF-Forderungen für die Kinder in Deutschland:  Kinderrechte im Grundgesetzt verankern! (Als Signal, das Wohl des Kindes tatsächlich im Sinne der UN-Konvention als Kernaufgabe zu betrachten.)  Entwicklung eines nationalen Aktionsplans gegen Kinderarmut!  Verbesserung Chancengleichheit in der Bildung! (Abbau der Benachteiligung von Kindern aus bildungsfernen Familien und Verbesserung der Angebote für Kinder mit Migrationshintergrund!)  Gleichbehandlung von Flüchtlingskindern! (Kinderrechte dürfen nicht vom ausländer- rechtlichen Status abhängig sein.)  Verbesserung der Beteiligungsmöglichkeiten für Kinder!
