The Rights of the Child
The objective of this exciting programme is to consider issues concerning the rights of the child that are a matter of current legal, political and societal attention, both internationally and comparatively. These include violence against children, refugee children, child participation, child poverty, business and children's rights, and child rights monitoring and advocacy.
The Summer School will examine international and regional child rights law, including the work of the international courts and treaty monitoring bodies mandated to consider violations of the rights of the child.
