This text is an appraisal of development in children's rights in British and international settings. It brings together contributions from academics, social welfare practitioners, educationalists, child psychologists and politicians. The book examines children's claims for rights in the social, welfare, judicial, educational and other settings. The various chapters consider the divergent responses of governments, the voluntary sector and other agencies to young people's rights claims by exploring and assessing the range of policy proposals designed to meet them. The book has four broad objectives: to explore the various strands to the debate concerning children's rights and review developments in rights provision across the 1980's and 1990's; to evaluate the impact of recent British legislation on children's rights in key areas such as education, social services, criminal justice and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; and to examine recent policy proposals and initiatives in the British setting intended to secure rights for children and young people.

Review:

"..a current and thorough treatment of children's rights social policy." -- Canadian Journal of Occupational Theory

"It accomplishes these tasks extremely well, providing the reader with an excellent comprehensive and insightful appraisal of recent developments in children's rights, now even more timely with an almost explosive acknowledgement worldwide of human rights documents." -- Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
