Summary

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.
