and their individual rights. These federal and state policies and
laws were spearheaded by the children’s rights movement which promotes
legal defenses and protections for children by addressing their social
welfare; health, education and special needs; child trafficking; child
labor and exploitation and how the juvenile justice system deals with
minors.

BULLYING:
A HUMAN RIGHTS
ISSUE




When children are victimized, whether the perpetrator is an adult or a peer, their rights
are being violated. Every human deserves and is entitled to respect and protection from
discrimination and harassment. As a vulnerable population within society, children are
at an increased risk for victimization and depend on adults to protect them and advocate
for their human rights.
