TORRECUADRADA GARCIA-LOZANO, Soledad. The Best Interest of the Child. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2016, vol.16, pp.131-157. ISSN 1870-4654.

The best interest of the child is the basic principle in the child's rights. The 1989 UN Convention about child's rights established it as a subjective right for a minor and as an interpretative principle for every single measure who could affect them directly or indirectly. Beyond the established in the convention we can see that the best interest of the child is the reason who inspire the conventional text, so as every other measure about a minor. However, it is not a principle without dark shades, who gives the judge a margin of decision and could lead to some questionable solutions.

Keywords : the best interest of the child; children rights; earing right; Children rights convention; interpretation principle.
