CRC 30th Anniversary Exhibition (with virtual exhibition link)

CRC 30th Anniversary Exhibition

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (abbreviated as the CRC) was promulgated on November 20, 1989. The Convention was incorporated into the domestic law of Taiwan through the Implementation Act of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

After thirty years of its promulgation, the public in Taiwan remains unfamiliar with the Convention, which safeguards the best interests of the child. Therefore, the National Human Rights Museum hosts a special exhibition “I Am a Child! I Have Rights!” to promote human rights education and to raise the awareness that children do not only object to be protected but also subjects to exercise their rights.

During the White Terror Era (1949-1987) in Taiwan, countless students below the age of 18 fell victim to human rights abuses, and children were not exempted under the authoritarian regime. It is hoped that visitors to the exhibition will learn more about Taiwan’s history of human rights, the contents and core values of the Convention, and the universal value of human rights in the historic setting of the museum.
