About the Authors
  • Children often fare the worst when communities face social and environmental changes. The quality of food, water, affection and education that children receive can have major impacts on their subsequent lives and their potential to become engaged and productive citizens. At the same time, children often lack both a private and public voice, and are powerless against government and private decision-making. In taking a child rights-based approach to sustainable development, this volume defines and identifies children as the subjects of development, and explores how their rights can be respected, protected and promoted while also ensuring the economic, social and environmental sustainability of our planet.

    • Provides a child-rights based approach to sustainable development
    • Considers a wide range of challenges facing children in the twenty-first century
    • Authors come from a wide range of disciplines - law, early childhood education, development studies

    'Dr Claire Fenton-Glynn's brilliant edited collection links children's rights to the world's crucial Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through rigorous analysis, led by inspiring vision. This volume offers lawyers, legal scholars and policy leaders a coherent and carefully researched series of outstanding expert perspectives from rapidly advancing law and policy on sustainable development, while the pressing challenges and insights for the protection of the most vulnerable, our children and our future, secure its worth for all our libraries.' Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger, University of Waterloo and University of Cambridge
