Summary: Children's rights - turning principles
into practice is a collection of essays
on the message of the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of the Child,
and on how its principles and
provisions can be turned into effective
programmes.
Children's rights - turning principles into practice is a collection
of essays on the message of the United Nations Convention on the
Rights of the Child, and on how its principles and provisions can be
turned into effective programmes. It addresses controversial and
topical issues relating to children's rights.
Is there space in our families, our societies and our politics
for 'the best interests' of the child?
Do children have any political influence? Who decides what is
developmental for children?
Do we understand children's evolving capacities?
The special session of the United Nations General Assembly on
Children 2001 will take stock of what has been achieved since the
World Summit for Children in 1990 and determine what now ought to be
done to translate the visions into concrete and effective programmes.
As a basis for this exercise, it is necessary to deepen the
understanding of the principles of the Convention; to develop
procedures for discussion, networking and reporting; and to encourage
political action for implementation. It is hoped that this book will
contribute to promoting such processes.
