Children's Rights: Experienced and Claimed

Children's Reports to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child

Edited by: Smiljana Simeunovic Frick

This book presents reports prepared by children and submitted to the UN's Committee on the Rights of the Child. Although children's participation has become an important topic in academic literature on childhood or children's rights, neither their participation in the monitoring process of the Children's Rights Convention nor their reports have received due attention so far. Children's reports document their citizenry practices and are a valuable source of information about their perspective on their rights and other related topics. The aim of the book is to give children an opportunity to have their voices heard by the wider public. (Series: Kinder - Jugend - Lebenswelten. Transnationale und interkulturelle Studien - Vol. 7)
