To mark the International Day of the Child 2011, the four Children's Commissioners from the United Kingdom have published a midterm report on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) for the UK Government and devolved administrations.

The report and the associated evidence examine progress made in five areas - participation, children with disabilities, child poverty, children seeking asylum and juvenile justice - against the UNCRC, an internationally binding minimum standard for all children and young people that was ratified by the UK Government twenty years ago.
