Somewhere along the way somebody got the idea that children and youth were not sufficiently protected by the general human rights documents. Worse still, youth believed they were protected but still had their rights routinely violated. So different people have created a variety of documents to expand the rights of children and youth.
There are many ways youth rights can be expanded. They include protest, lobbying and other forms of activism.
