Summary
  • "In the years since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) childrens rights have assumed a central position in a wide variety of disciplines and policies. This handbook offers an engaging overview of the contemporary research landscape for those people engaged in the theory and practice of childrens rights. The volume consists of two parts with the first providing an insight into interdisciplinary approaches to childrens rights, with contributions from history, childhood studies, sociology, social work and educational sciences, law, anthropology, and gender studies. The second part considers key issues in childrens rights situating them at the intersection of the global and the local. This combination of disciplinary approaches and thematic analysis allows the reader to gain a deep understanding of childrens rights. The handbook takes a critical approach to the topic, questioning and analysing assumptions underlying childrens rights practices. The specially commissioned chapters have been written by renowned scholars and researchers working in the field and come together to provide an invaluable guide to the challenges and dilemmas currently facing childrens rights"--
