3 of the Human Rights Act 1998. The UNCRC The antecedents of the UNCRC are different from those of the ECHR. The UNCRC is one of a number of human rights instruments negotiated and agreed within the United Nations, dealing with a particular category of persons deemed to be especially vulnerable or to have special needs. The idea of having an international agreement about children was first mooted by Eglantyne Jebb, the remarkable woman who went on to co-found Save the Children.
