The articles in this volume shed light on some of the major tensions in the field of children’s rights (such as the ways in which children’s best interests and respect for their autonomy can be reconciled), challenges (such as how the CRC can be made a reality in the lives of children in the face of ignorance, apathy or outright opposition) and critiques (whether children’s rights are a Western imposition or a successful global consensus). Along the way, the writing covers a myriad of issues, encompassing the opposition to the CRC in the US; gay parenting: Dr Seuss’s take on children’s autonomy; the voice of neonates on their health care; the role of NGO in supporting child labourers in India, and young people in detention and more.

Review:

'This book belongs on the shelf of every academic law or social library throughout the world and in the personal library of most child advocates.' Law Books in Review 'This is an important addition to the growing body of work on children's rights...The contributions are thought provoking and will move domestic debates forward. This is a useful reference for all those interested in comparative issues: an essential read for all those seriously interested in pursuing issues around the shape of future relationships between children, their families and the state.' Social Work in Europe '...essential reading for anyone interested in the deeper theoretical and legal problems raised by the development of children's rights.' Childright

Synopsis:

This work examines the United Nations Convention on the Rights of The Child finalized in 1989 along with the children's rights movement as a whole. The historical study draws on the Geneva Declaration in 1924 up to the Convention in 1989, tracing the changing principles of children's rights.
