Children’s Rights into the Basic Law! Why Children’s Rights belong into the Constitution and what would change

Children’s Rights into the Basic Law! Why Children’s Rights belong into the Constitution and what would change.
The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has repeatedly called on Germany to enshrine children’s rights into its constitution. Numerous children’s rights organizations have joined this demand. The coalition contract of our current government stipulates the introduction of a basic right for children.
What are the arguments for such a basic right? How can it be formulated? And above all: Would the situation of children improve then?
