Netherlands has Poor Record Concerning Children's Rights

The Netherlands falls short in children's rights as defined by the United Nations. This is reflected in policies toward foreigners residing in the country, health care and child care. This is reported in a study about children's rights by UNICEF Nederland and Defence for Children International Nederland (DCI). The report suggests the appointment of a children's ombudsman. It also suggests a study of female circumcision.
