Enhancing an inclusive, participatory and respectful school culture for Children and Adults: Call for Papers
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (the UNCRC) is the most comprehensive human rights instrument dedicated solely to the promotion and protection of children's rights. As the only United Nations treaty to have achieved almost universal ratification, the UNCRC has attracted extensive attention, not least for its role in explicitly positioning children as active holders of rights rather than mere objects of concern.
However existing scholarship indicates that despite such international 'buy-in', children's rights are not always protected or promoted effectively, with some individual children and groups of children experiencing extreme violations of their rights.
This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together scholars to explore key issues, opportunities and challenges in implementing the UNCRC. In particular we are interested in exploring the gap between children's rights standards as set out by the UNCRC and the active implementation of the UNCRC rights within States Parties.
The conference will provide an important forum for the interaction of ideas and information between academicians, professionals and practitioners in orders to enhance the understanding of the children and their rights. Prominent educationists, principals, academicians and researchers will attend the conference and contribute their valuable ideas on the rights of the child.
Scholars from any discipline whose work relates to the Convention on the Rights of the Child and/or children's rights are warmly welcomed.
