Welcome to the conference
Children's Rights: origins, normativity, transformations and prospects
About three decades after the introduction of the United Nations Convention on The Rights of the Child, children’s rights have to a certain extent gained hegemonic status in policy making and a wide range of social and political practices on children and childhood. This conference brings together scholars from various disciplines to address the historical origins, the normative foundations, transformations and prospects of children’s rights. What will such inquiries implicate for current political challenges and child related policies and how can it critically engage with the current focus on implementation of children’s rights?
