Transforming children’s rights? Dilemmas, challenges and implementation @ LG34 Charteris Land Moray House School of Education
Apr 23 all-day

Centre for Research in Education Inclusion & Diversity (CREID)

Across the four nations of the UK, there have been different rates of progress in terms of incorporating aspects of the UNCRC into domestic law. Holding this seminar in Scotland is timely, with the Scottish Government’s promise to incorporate the principles of CRC into domestic law, a three year awareness raising programme for children’s rights, and an emerging children and young people’s participation framework. It is thus timely to consider where we are now – and where we want to be – learning from across the UK and beyond.

Questions addressed by contributors include the following:

  • What rights have been accorded to children and young people in different social policy arenas and UK jurisdictions?
  • What are and should be the roles of the state, parents and children?
  • What challenges arise when translating policy rhetoric on children’s rights into meaningful action on the ground?
  • For the next 30 years, what dilemmas may arise in relation to children’s rights? What are the potential solutions?
