Human Rights and Humanitarian Law E-Books Online, Collection 2018, ISBN ; 9789004353312.
This collection of essays by a variety of scholars, compiled to celebrate the silver anniversary of The International Journal of Children's Rights , builds on work already in the literature to reveal where we are now at and how the law concerned with children is reacting to new developments. New, or relatively new subject matter is explored, such as film classification, intersex genital mutilation, the right to development. Rights within the context of sport are given an airing. We are offered new perspectives on discipline, on the significance of "rights flowing downhill," on the so-called "General Principles." The uses to which the CRC is put in legal reasoning in some legal systems is critically examined. Though not intended as an audit, the collection offers a fascinating image of where the field of children's right is at now, the progress that has been made, and what issues will require work in the future.
