THE CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD LA CONVENZIONE SUI DIRITTI DELL'INFANZIA

Preamble

PREAMBOLO

The States Parties to the present Convention,

Gli Stati parti alla presente Convenzione

Considering that, in accordance with the principles proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Considerando che, in conformità con i principi proclamati nella Carta delle Nazioni Unite, il riconoscimento della dignità inerente a tutti i membri della famiglia umana nonché l’uguaglianza e il carattere inalienabile dei loro diritti sono le fondamenta della libertà, della giustizia e della pace nel mondo,

Bearing in mind that the peoples of the United Nations have, in the Charter, reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights and in the dignity and worth of the human person and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Tenendo presente che i popoli delle Nazioni Unite hanno ribadito nella Carta la loro fede nei diritti fondamentali dell’uomo e nella dignità e nel valore della persona umana e hanno risolto di favorire il progresso sociale e di instaurare migliori condizioni di vita in una maggiore libertà,

Recognizing that the United Nations has, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the International Covenants on Human Rights, proclaimed and agreed that everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth therein, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status,

Riconoscendo che le Nazioni Unite nella Dichiarazione Universale dei Diritti dell’Uomo e nei Patti internazionali relativi ai Diritti dell’Uomo hanno proclamato e hanno convenuto che ciascuno può avvalersi di tutti i diritti e di tutte le libertà che vi sono enunciate, senza distinzione di sorta in particolare di razza, di colore, di sesso, di lingua, di religione, di opinione politica o di ogni altra opinione, di origine nazionale o sociale, di ricchezza, di nascita o di ogni altra circostanza,

Recalling that, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations has proclaimed that childhood is entitled to special care and assistance,

Rammentando che nella Dichiarazione Universale dei Diritti dell’Uomo le Nazioni Unite hanno proclamato che l’infanzia ha diritto a un aiuto e a un'assistenza particolari,

Convinced that the family, as the fundamental group of society and the natural environment for the growth and well-being of all its members and particularly children, should be afforded the necessary protection and assistance so that it can fully assume its responsibilities within the community,

Convinti che la famiglia, unità fondamentale della società e ambiente naturale per la crescita e il benessere di tutti i suoi membri e in particolare dei fanciulli, deve ricevere la protezione e l’assistenza di cui necessita per poter svolgere integralmente il suo ruolo nella collettività,

Recognizing that the child, for the full and harmonious development of his or her personality, should grow up in a family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding,

Riconoscendo che il fanciullo ai fini dello sviluppo armonioso e completo della sua personalità deve crescere in un ambiente familiare in un clima di felicità, di amore e di comprensione,

Considering that the child should be fully prepared to live an individual life in society and brought up in the spirit of the ideals proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations and in particular in the spirit of peace, dignity, tolerance, freedom, equality and solidarity,

In considerazione del fatto che occorre preparare pienamente il fanciullo ad avere una sua vita individuale nella società, ed educarlo nello spirito degli ideali proclamati nella Carta delle Nazioni Unite, in particolare in uno spirito di pace, di dignità, di tolleranza, di libertà, di uguaglianza e di solidarietà,

Bearing in mind that the need to extend particular care to the child has been stated in the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child of 1924 and in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child adopted by the General Assembly on 20 November 1959 and recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (in particular in articles 23 and 24), in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (in particular in article 10) and in the statutes and relevant instruments of specialized agencies and international organizations concerned with the welfare of children, '

Tenendo presente che la necessità di concedere una protezione speciale al fanciullo è stata enunciata nella Dichiarazione di Ginevra del 1924 sui diritti del fanciullo e nella Dichiarazione dei Diritti del Fanciullo adottata dall’Assemblea Generale il 20 novembre 1959 e riconosciuta nella Dichiarazione Universale dei Diritti dell’Uomo, nel Patto internazionale relativo ai diritti civili e politici | in particolare negli artt. 23 e 24 | nel Patto internazionale relativo ai diritti economici, sociali e culturali | in particolare all’art. 10 | e negli Statuti e strumenti pertinenti delle Istituzioni specializzate e delle Organizzazioni internazionali che si preoccupano del benessere del fanciullo,

Bearing in mind that, as indicated in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, "the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth",

Tenendo presente che, come indicato nella Dichiarazione dei Diritti dell’Uomo il fanciullo, a causa della sua mancanza di maturità fisica e intellettuale, necessita di una protezione e di cure particolari, ivi compresa una protezione legale appropriata, sia prima che dopo la nascita,

Recalling the provisions of the Declaration on Social and Legal Principles relating to the Protection and Welfare of Children, with Special Reference to Foster Placement and Adoption Nationally and Internationally; the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Administration of Juvenile Justice (The Beijing Rules) ; and the Declaration on the Protection of Women and Children in Emergency and Armed Conflict,

Rammentando le disposizioni della Dichiarazione sui principi sociali e giuridici applicabili alla protezione e al benessere dei fanciulli, considerati soprattutto sotto il profilo della prassi in materia di adozione e di collocamento familiare a livello nazionale e internazionale; dell’insieme delle regole minime delle Nazioni Unite relative all’amministrazione della giustizia minorile (Regole di Pechino) e della Dichiarazione sulla protezione delle donne e dei fanciulli in periodi di emergenza e di conflitto armato,

Recognizing that, in all countries in the world, there are children living in exceptionally difficult conditions and that such children need special consideration,

Riconoscendo che vi sono in tutti i paesi del mondo fanciulli che vivono in condizioni particolarmente difficili e che è necessario prestare loro una particolare attenzione,

Taking due account of the importance of the traditions and cultural values of each people for the protection and harmonious development of the child,

Tenendo debitamente conto dell’importanza delle tradizioni e dei valori culturali di ciascun popolo per la protezione e lo sviluppo armonioso del fanciullo,

Recognizing the importance of international co-operation for improving the living conditions of children in every country, in particular in the developing countries,

Riconoscendo l’importanza della cooperazione internazionale per il miglioramento delle condizioni di vita dei fanciulli in tutti i paesi, in particolare nei paesi in via di sviluppo,

Have agreed as follows:

Hanno convenuto quanto segue:

Gli Stati parti rispettano la responsabilità, il diritto e il dovere dei genitori o, se del caso, dei membri della famiglia allargata o della collettività, come previsto dagli usi locali, dei tutori o altre persone legalmente responsabili del fanciullo, di dare a quest’ultimo, in maniera corrispondente allo sviluppo delle sue capacità, l’orientamento e i consigli adeguati all’esercizio dei diritti che gli sono riconosciuti dalla presente Convenzione.

2. Gli Stati parti vigilano affinché questi diritti siano attuati in conformità con la loro legislazione nazionale e con gli obblighi che sono imposti loro dagli strumenti internazionali applicabili in materia, in particolare nei casi in cui, se ciò non fosse fatto, il fanciullo verrebbe a trovarsi apolide.

Article 9

Articolo 9

1. States Parties shall ensure that a child shall not be separated from his or her parents against their will, except when competent authorities subject to judicial review determine, in accordance with applicable law and procedures, that such separation is necessary for the best interests of the child. Such determination may be necessary in a particular case such as one involving abuse or neglect of the child by the parents, or one where the parents are living separately and a decision must be made as to the child's place of residence.

1. Gli Stati parti vigilano affinché il fanciullo non sia separato dai suoi genitori contro la loro volontà a meno che le autorità competenti non decidano, sotto riserva di revisione giudiziaria e conformemente con le leggi di procedura applicabili, che questa separazione è necessaria nell’interesse preminente del fanciullo. Una decisione in questo senso può essere necessaria in taluni casi particolari, ad esempio quando i genitori maltrattino o trascurino il fanciullo, oppure se vivano separati e una decisione debba essere presa riguardo al luogo di residenza del fanciullo.

2. In any proceedings pursuant to paragraph 1 of the present article, all interested parties shall be given an opportunity to participate in the proceedings and make their views known.

2. In tutti i casi previsti al paragrafo 1 del presente articolo, tutte le parti interessate devono avere la possibilità di partecipare alle deliberazioni e di far conoscere le loro opinioni.

3. States Parties shall respect the right of the child who is separated from one or both parents to maintain personal relations and direct contact with both parents on a regular basis, except if it is contrary to the child's best interests.

3. Gli Stati parti rispettano il diritto del fanciullo separato da entrambi i genitori o da uno di essi di intrattenere regolarmente rapporti personali e contatti diretti con entrambi i genitori, a meno che ciò non sia contrario all’interesse preminente del fanciullo.

4. Where such separation results from any action initiated by a State Party, such as the detention, imprisonment, exile, deportation or death (including death arising from any cause while the person is in the custody of the State) of one or both parents or of the child, that State Party shall, upon request, provide the parents, the child or, if appropriate, another member of the family with the essential information concerning the whereabouts of the absent member(s) of the family unless the provision of the information would be detrimental to the well-being of the child. States Parties shall further ensure that the submission of such a request shall of itself entail no adverse consequences for the person(s) concerned.

4. Se la separazione è il risultato di provvedimenti adottati da uno Stato parte, come la detenzione, l’imprigionamento, l’esilio, l’espulsione o la morte (compresa la morte, quale che ne sia la causa, sopravvenuta durante la detenzione) di entrambi i genitori o di uno di essi, o del fanciullo, lo Stato parte fornisce dietro richiesta ai genitori, al fanciullo oppure, se del caso, a un altro membro della famiglia, le informazioni essenziali concernenti il luogo dove si trovano il familiare o i familiari, a meno che la divulgazione di tali informazioni possa mettere a repentaglio il benessere del fanciullo. Gli Stati parti vigilano inoltre affinché la presentazione di tale domanda non comporti di per sé conseguenze pregiudizievoli per la persona o per le persone interessate.

Article 10

Articolo 10

1. In accordance with the obligation of States Parties under article 9, paragraph 1, applications by a child or his or her parents to enter or leave a State Party for the purpose of family reunification shall be dealt with by States Parties in a positive, humane and expeditious manner.

1. In conformità con l’obbligo che incombe agli Stati parti in virtù del paragrafo 1 dell’art. 9, ogni domanda presentata da un fanciullo o dai suoi genitori in vista di entrare in uno Stato parte o di lasciarlo ai fini di un ricongiungimento familiare sarà considerata con uno spirito positivo, con umanità e diligenza. Gli Stati parti vigilano inoltre affinché la presentazione di tale domanda non comporti conseguenze pregiudizievoli per gli autori della domanda e per i loro familiari.

2. A child whose parents reside in different States shall have the right to maintain on a regular basis, save in exceptional circumstances personal relations and direct contacts with both parents. Towards that end and in accordance with the obligation of States Parties under article 9, paragraph 1, States Parties shall respect the right of the child and his or her parents to leave any country, including their own and to enter their own country. The right to leave any country shall be subject only to such restrictions as are prescribed by law and which are necessary to protect the national security, public order (ordre public), public health or morals or the rights and freedoms of others and are consistent with the other rights recognized in the present Convention.

2. Un fanciullo i cui genitori risiedono in Stati diversi ha diritto a intrattenere rapporti personali e contatti diretti regolari con entrambi i suoi genitori, salve circostanze eccezionali. A tal fine, e in conformità con l’obbligo incombente agli Stati parti, in virtù del paragrafo 1 dell’art.9, gli Stati parti rispettano il diritto del fanciullo e dei suoi genitori di abbandonare ogni paese, compreso il loro e di fare ritorno nel proprio paese. Il diritto di abbandonare ogni paese può essere regolamentato solo dalle limitazioni stabilite dalla legislazione, necessarie ai fini della protezione della sicurezza interna, dell’ordine pubblico, della salute o della moralità pubbliche, o dei diritti e delle libertà altrui, compatibili con gli altri diritti riconosciuti nella presente Convenzione.

Article 11

Articolo 11

1. States Parties shall take measures to combat the illicit transfer and non-return of children abroad.

2. A tal fine, gli Stati parti favoriscono la conclusione di accordi bilaterali o multilaterali oppure l’adesione ad accordi esistenti.

Article 12

Articolo 12

1. States Parties shall assure to the child who is capable of forming his or her own views the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child, the views of the child being given due weight in accordance with the age and maturity of the child.

1. Gli Stati parti garantiscono al fanciullo capace di discernimento il diritto di esprimere liberamente la sua opinione su ogni questione che lo interessa, le opinioni del fanciullo essendo debitamente prese in considerazione tenendo conto della sua età e del suo grado di maturità.

2. For this purpose, the child shall in particular be provided the opportunity to be heard in any judicial and administrative proceedings affecting the child, either directly, or through a representative or an appropriate body, in a manner consistent with the procedural rules of national law.

2. A tal fine, si darà in particolare al fanciullo la possibilità di essere ascoltato in ogni procedura giudiziaria o amministrativa che lo concerne, sia direttamente, sia tramite un rappresentante o un organo appropriato, in maniera compatibile con le regole di procedura della legislazione nazionale.

Article 13

3. Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, order, health or morals, or the fundamental rights and freedoms of others.

3. La libertà di manifestare la propria religione o convinzioni può essere soggetta unicamente alle limitazioni prescritte dalla legge, necessarie ai fini del mantenimento della sicurezza pubblica, dell’ordine pubblico, della sanità e della moralità pubbliche, oppure delle libertà e diritti fondamentali dell’uomo.

THE CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD

Preamble

The States Parties to the present Convention,

Considering that, in accordance with the principles proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Bearing in mind that the peoples of the United Nations have, in the Charter, reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights and in the dignity and worth of the human person and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Recognizing that the United Nations has, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the International Covenants on Human Rights, proclaimed and agreed that everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth therein, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status,

Recalling that, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations has proclaimed that childhood is entitled to special care and assistance,

Convinced that the family, as the fundamental group of society and the natural environment for the growth and well-being of all its members and particularly children, should be afforded the necessary protection and assistance so that it can fully assume its responsibilities within the community,

Recognizing that the child, for the full and harmonious development of his or her personality, should grow up in a family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding,

Considering that the child should be fully prepared to live an individual life in society and brought up in the spirit of the ideals proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations and in particular in the spirit of peace, dignity, tolerance, freedom, equality and solidarity,

Bearing in mind that the need to extend particular care to the child has been stated in the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child of 1924 and in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child adopted by the General Assembly on 20 November 1959 and recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (in particular in articles 23 and 24), in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (in particular in article 10) and in the statutes and relevant instruments of specialized agencies and international organizations concerned with the welfare of children, '

Bearing in mind that, as indicated in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, "the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth",

Recalling the provisions of the Declaration on Social and Legal Principles relating to the Protection and Welfare of Children, with Special Reference to Foster Placement and Adoption Nationally and Internationally; the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Administration of Juvenile Justice (The Beijing Rules) ; and the Declaration on the Protection of Women and Children in Emergency and Armed Conflict,

Recognizing that, in all countries in the world, there are children living in exceptionally difficult conditions and that such children need special consideration,

Taking due account of the importance of the traditions and cultural values of each people for the protection and harmonious development of the child,

Recognizing the importance of international co-operation for improving the living conditions of children in every country, in particular in the developing countries,

Have agreed as follows:
