Competence center for children's need for family life in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
The Government has decided that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) should be incorporated into Swedish law. Sweden is already bound by the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), which in article 8 gives children the right to family life. This right is violated with increasing frequency in the context of parental conflict and separation.
