This chapter primarily focuses on the substantive protection of children rights in Sudan under Islamic laws and how such laws are in harmony or in conflict with international humanitarian and human rights norms related to the protection of the rights of the child. The chapter audits and reviews Sudanese children laws, including the newly enacted Child Act 2010, and review the extent Sudan has harmonized or incorporates its laws along the lines of what is required under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, 1989, and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. In this respect, the chapter relies heavily on the government of Sudan submitted periodic reports to the Committee of the RIghts of the Child.
