The adoption in November 1989, by the UN General Assembly, of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child heralded the arrival of a new era in the development of children's rights. As of March 1991, over 75 states have ratified the Convention. Using the Convention as a framework, the contributors to this volume set out to re-evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of issues of children's welfare and well-being through the lens of a human rights approach. The aim is to take a fresh look at these issues and to do so with specific reference to an international treaty.
