(The Guardian) – Children suffering abuse and exploitation would have the right to take their governments to an international human rights court under proposals announced by Gordon Brown on Wednesday. The former prime minister used the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention on the rights of the child to demand a new global body that would offer better protection against forced marriages, child labour and child trafficking. Brown, the UN special envoy for global education, said arrangements for protecting the rights of children were inadequate and called for a children’s court modelled on the European Court of Human Rights.
