International Child Law examines and discusses the international legal framework and issues relating to children at both a global and regional level. Analysing both public and private international legal aspects, this cross-disciplinary text promotes an understanding of the ongoing development of child law and the protection of the child.

This second edition has been substantially updated and revised, and three new chapters have been introduced. Together with new material on sexual exploitation and children’s involvement in armed conflict, a new chapter on indigenous children’s rights responds to the recent United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child remains a central topic, and the mechanisms and policy underlying the Hague Conventions on Intercountry Adoption and Parental International Child Abduction are dealt with in two further chapters. Drawing on a genuine range of legal disciplines, International Child Law is a valuable resource for those in the course of study and research in this area.
