Abstract


The legal protection of minors has become one of the priorities in the field of human rights protection in developed democracies, since the second half of the XX century. Facts of troubled position of children are of particular public interest. That is why the attention of scientists, politicians, public figures and media on issues related to minors in society has increased in recent years in Central Asia. The relevance of the research on the legal status of minors at the present stage of social development is stipulated by several factors: - Integration of Central Asia into the world community requires bringing the current legislation in accordance with international instruments; - The democratization of social relations and formation of the rule of law stipulate the importance of public authorities and civil society consolidation; - Minors are one of the most vulnerable groups regarding socio-economic and moral-psychological relations. The urgency of the problems encountered in public relations, naturally affects the aim of the research, consisting in attempts to find a possible solution, clarify the reasons of the negative phenomena and to determine the mechanism of their elimination.
