Children: Rights and Childhood is widely regarded as the first book to offer a detailed philosophical examination of children’s rights. David Archard provides a clear and accessible introduction to a topic that has assumed increasing relevance since the book’s first publication. Divided clearly into three parts, it covers key topics such as: John Locke’s writings on children Philippe Ariès’s Centuries of Childhood children’s moral and legal rights a child’s right to vote and to sexual choice parental rights to privacy and autonomy defining and understanding child abuse. The third edition has been fully revised and updated throughout with a new chapter providing an in-depth analysis of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and Part 2 has been restructured to move the reader from general theoretical considerations of children’s rights through to practical issues. This volume is ideal reading for advanced studies across Philosophy, Social Work, Law, Childhood Studies, Politics, and Social Policy.

A marked change in traditional thinking about children and childhood was promoted by the adoption by the United Nations (in 1989) of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In the early 90s sociologists in the United States and the UK developed Childhood Studies to promote a holistic view of children's lives, recognition of their competence and agency, and the impact and value of their everyday experiences. As a result of this impetus, different thinking has emerged about the role and recognition of children, the institutions of childhood, and the way we view and treat children in modern societies. This book focuses on research emerging from Children's Rights and Childhood Studies thinking, which has important implications for developing policies and practices to improve children's well being and rights. The author presents the implications of children's rights for six contexts of children's everyday lives: families; early childhood education; schooling; child protection services; health services; and employment.

Using examples from a Reggio-inspired school with children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years, the authors emphasize the importance of children’s rights and our responsibility as adults to hear their voices. Seen and Heard summarizes research and theory pertaining to young children’s rights in the United States, and offers strategies educators can use to ensure the inclusion of children’s perspectives in everyday decisions. Real-life classroom vignettes illustrate how young children perceive the idea of rights through observation and discussion. The authors’ work is based on three essential ideas: (1) the “one hundred languages” children use for exploring, discovering, constructing, representing, and conveying their ideas; (2) the “pedagogy of listening,” in which children and adults carefully attend to the world and to one another; (3) the notion that all children have the right to participate in the communities in which they reside. “This exuberant study of how children see their world should be read by every one concerned about the future of democracy.” —Mary Catherine Bateson, cultural anthropologist “Seen and Heard is a much-needed and powerful antidote to so many of the worrisome forces at work in early childhood education today.” —Diane E. Levin, Wheelock College “What we feel about children's rights affects everything. It impacts how we are with children, what we offer, what we say, how we listen, the questions we ask, the opportunities we provide.” —From the Foreword by Bonnie Neugebauer, Co-founder and Director of Program Development, World Forum Foundation and editor of Exchange magazine

International Child Law examines and discusses the international legal framework and issues relating to children. Analysing both public and private international legal aspects, this cross-disciplinary text promotes an understanding of the ongoing development of child law, children’s rights and the protection of the child. Examining the theoretical background to the law, and providing a concise and clear overview of the instruments and institutions that protect children internationally, this text then focuses on key themes and issues in child law and children’s rights. This new edition has been updated and revised throughout, including expanded material on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as discussion of recent landmark developments on the law relating to recruiting child soldiers as a result of Lubanga (2012). The third edition also includes a new case study feature that critically considers key themes and issues in international child law in a real world context. Drawing on a range of legal and other disciplines, International Child Law is a valuable resource for those in the course of study and research in this area.

Gemeinsame Leitthemen der in diesem Band enthaltenen drei Studien sind die Ursprünge des Selbstverlustes und Wege der Selbstfindung. Das Drama des begabten, das heißt sensiblen, wachen Kindes besteht darin, daß es schon früh Bedürfnisse seiner Eltern spürt und sich ihnen anpaßt, indem es lernt, seine intensivsten, aber unerwünschten Gefühle nicht zu fühlen. Obwohl diese "verpönten" Gefühle später nicht immer vermieden werden können, bleiben sie doch abgespalten, das heißt: Der vitalste Teil des wahren Selbst wird nicht in die Persönlichkeit integriert. Das führt zu emotionaler Verunsicherung und Verarmung (Selbstverlust), die sich in der Depression ausdrücken oder aber in der Grandiosität abgewehrt werden. Die angeführten Beispiele sensibilisieren für das nicht artikulierte, hinter Idealisierungen verborgene Leiden des Kindes wie auch für die Tragik der nicht verfügbaren Eltern, die einst selbst verfügbare Kinder gewesen sind.
