This volume examines, from a number of different perspectives, the implications of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, for justice for children. The contributors are drawn from a cross-section of the community of individuals with an interest in, or responsibility for, children: academics, practitioners, policy makers and researchers. It therefore blends the academic with the practical and has immediate relevance for those researchers, lawyers, academics, fieldworkers and policy makers whose concern is children's rights.;""Justice for Children"" is based on proceedings of the International Conference on Justice for Children, held in Glasgow, September 1992.
