The new edition of this handbook provides up-to-date information on a topic of increasing importance across a range of disciplines and practices. It covers:-

  • the debate concerning children's rights and developments in rights provision since the 1980's;
  • the impact of British legislation on children's rights in key areas such as education, social and welfare services and criminal justice;
  • the key provisions of the UN Convention and Human Rights Act; policy proposals and initiatives in the British setting intended to establish and promote rights for children and young people;
  • the rights claims of particular groups of children, for example children who are carers or children who are disabled;.
  • children's claims for particular rights such as the right to space, to sex education and citizenship;
  • the ways in which the voices of children and young people are or might be articulated more clearly in policy debates and other arenas;
  • issues and developments in Europe, Scandinavia and China. The New Handbook of Children's Rights offers a comprehensive and radical appraisal of the field which should be useful to students and professionals alike.
