Product Overview

Children are a voiceless minority with few political or legal rights. They are usually regarded as appendages of their parents. They exert no influence on any of the powerful groups and institutions which inform and underpin social and economic change. The whole concept of the rights of children is a new one. But what do we mean by children's rights? The essential thrust of a children's rights perspective is to establish a benchmark below which law and policy-makers cannot go. Empowering children as fully autonomous individuals with legal rights, the author argues, will enhance democratic society as a whole.
