I was not terribly sure how many people I could reasonably expect for this lecture, especially since the former Prime Minister, the Hon. Tony Abbort, has said that Australians are sick of being lectured to by the United Nations ' (Cox 2015). Thank for your presence and for the opportunity. A few disclaimers are in order. first, I am a migrant. Second, this lecture does not intend to engage in detail with the laws, processes, structures, and so on of Australia but rather offers an outsider's view of the obligations in the Convention on the Rights of the Child(CRC or the Convention).
