Legislation on children in Mozambique

Full title: 

Main legislation on children in Mozambique        


The present compilation of legal acts comprises of texts which relate to the protection of children. To make consultation simpler, legal norms related to children have been divided into six main fields, namely the right to equality and non-discrimination, the right to survival, the right to development, the right to protection, the right to participation and legal incapacity.

In addition, as a starting point, an attempt has been made to identify examples of rights and other matters related to children, which are the object of this compilation. The identification of rights undertaken will not always correspond to the whole legal act being transcribed; it just corresponds to the part that is relevant to the issue at hand.
