The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child requires state parties to submit a report every five years on how they are fulfilling their obligations, and the UK Children's Commissioners jointly produced a separate report to the UN Committee explaining how, in their view, the UK still fails in its obligations. This commentary discusses that report from 2008, drawing attention in particular to the continued low age of criminal responsibility, the minimal protections against discrimination afforded children, and the continued legality of corporal punishment of children.

Keywords:   UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, UK's Report and UN Committee's “Concluding Observations”, Children's Commissioners, Age of criminal responsibility, Antisocial behaviour orders, Disability discrimination, Corporal punishment
