Abstract

Children are objects that are vulnerable to many violations of the law. Starting from deprivation of liberty, bullying, child trafficking, violence to sexual abuse. This paper discusses how the state exists through Law Number 17 of 2016 regarding legal protection for children, as part of Indonesian citizens. Through a normative approach and extracting literature data, it was found that based on applicable laws, the state guarantees that children are properly protected by law. The state guarantees legal protection for children's rights, exploitation, child welfare, deprivation of children's freedom, and protection from violence.
