Institutionalise The Best Interests Of Children In National Policy

Children under the age of 18 make up 27% of Malaysia’s total population, accounting for over 9 million individuals, and every single one of them is protected under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Malaysia acceded to in 1995. Do our national policies live up to the obligations we subscribe to under the treaty? We assess this with the Chief Children's Commissioner, Dr. Farah Nini Dusuki and find out the priorities of her mandate.
