This introductory text on the rights of the child covers all the issues involved in a comprehensive and accessible way. It offers criteria for considering children's self-expression, and provides practical examples, focusing on ordinary children in everyday situations. Key legal issues are included, and the book contains examples of practical issues from many different cultures. The authors open with a discussion of human rights in general, and then focus on the basis for rights for children and the role of the Convention. The second part of the book looks at participation rights and rights of self-expression in theory and practice; while the third section focuses on the exercise of the rights of self-expression, the empowerment of children, and how, in practical terms, this can be implemented.
