Children’s Rights: Global Perspectives, Challenges and Issues of the 21st Century


Samuel M. Lange (Editor)

Series: Family Issues in the 21st Century
BISAC: FAM011000

The opening chapter of Children’s Rights: Global Perspectives, Challenges and Issues of the 21st Century argues that an alternative praxis, one that honours constructivist and post humanist theoretical approaches to teaching and learning, is a rights-based praxis. This approach takes as its foundational assumption the contention that programmes and services have a responsibility to ensure the rights of children and their families are met.

Chapter two is dedicated to children’s views about their participation rights in school. It analyses what five-year-old children from Scotland and Greece said about a teacher-centred school for them.

The author in the closing chapter explores how Russian child rights-oriented NGOs supported by domestic state actors and partners from abroad advocate a child welfare reform. (Imprint: Nova)
