The collection aims to inspire readers with new approaches to implementing and monitoring the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, to make rights ‘real’ in children’s lives.
Children’s human rights are internationally recognised in the legally binding international treaty—the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most ratified of all human rights treaties. Although measures are increasingly being taken to implement the Convention at a national level, more needs to be done to ensure that children’s rights are recognised and supported in their daily lives. This collection brings together the latest research on new approaches to embedding children’s rights into national law and policies, with contributions from academics, practitioners and importantly young activists, from the UK and beyond. This book will be of interest to all human rights advocates, particularly policy makers and practitioners looking for new ways in which to make children’s rights real.
The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of The International Journal of Human Rights.
