This unique, pioneering study traces the origin, growth and basic features of the international law of youth rights. It consists of both source documents and commentary on the historical trends to elaborate and codify international instruments and standards in this field (especially by the League of Nations system: 19191940, and the United Nations system: 19461994), as well as action taken by governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental organizations to promote and protect youth rights.
It concludes with a call for a new international instrument and monitoring machinery to better promote and protect the rights of youth on a global basis.
