dc.description.abstract This dissertation will primarily involve desk-based research to examine those provisions of the Liberian Children's Law that refer to measures preventing the use of children in armed conflict, measures protecting children from being used in armed conflict as well as measures reintegrating children into society who have participated in such violence in their past in light of CRC standards. Reference will also be made to scholarly contributions on children's rights in postconflict societies, reports on and documentation of the condition of child rights in Liberia and the relevant international and regional human rights instruments including the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. Among critiquing the Children's Law by comparing its standards to other international human rights instruments, feasibility of the Children's Law will be examined by considering 1) justiciability, 2) accessibility, and 3) enforceability as criteria indicating whether the Children's Law is a substantive document and proves effective in theory or not. en_ZA
