Interview with the German Minister of Justice


We have heard from our friends in Africa that there are still problems with the implementation of children's rights there.

But how does the situation in Germany look? Why are children's rights not part of the Constitution? Who can we turn to when our rights are not respected? And do they apply to all children living in Germany?

We wanted to know for sure, so we asked German Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger.

We had to conclude that the German legal system is quite complicated!.

But we also learned that last year, a European Union charter of fundamental rights was adopted that included children's rights. And, the United Nations' children's legal committee is responsible for the implementation and compliance of children's rights.

But more needs to be done on a global scale! So we asked Minister Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger to urge German Chancellor Angela Merkel to push for the observance of children's rights all around the world.
