International Child Law examines the international laws for children at both a global and a regional level. In particular the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is described and critically assessed, while at the regional level the child in Europe is examined and how far the ECHR is engaged as a vehicle to progress childrens rights. Other key issues, increasing regulated by international child law, are spotlighted: child labour, child abduction and inter-country adoption.
This book provides the reader with a sound understanding of the international law framework and issues relating to children and is a useful resource to those undertaking advanced study and or research in this area.
