Migrants + Refugees
Artwork by Chris Judge
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child recognises that children who are refugees or seeking asylum have the right to special protection, and the State has an obligation to cooperate with competent organisations providing such protection and assistance. All such children are entitled to enjoy all their Convention rights. In this image, 13 children of different races wear the same orange life jacket, sailing together without any adults on a turbulent sea.
