The International Journal of Children’s Rights UNCRC 30th Anniversary Conference
20 June, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 21 June, 2019 @ 5:00 pm CEST
Thirty Years of Children’s Rights Scholarship: Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead
This conference will provide an opportunity for children’s rights scholars from across the globe to reflect on developments in children’s rights scholarship since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It will cover a range of issues, including juvenile justice, education, family relationships, child participation, health and well-being, poverty and immigration.
Discussions will be informed by a series of short reviews by leading and up-and-coming scholars from across the world who will reflect on key theoretical, empirical and methodological contributions to children’s rights research over the past three decades. This will help to reveal gaps in knowledge and identify opportunities and priorities for further scholarship.
Our Programme Manager Ilaria Paolazzi will be participating.
