Children's Rights and the Capability Approach : Challenges and Prospects Hardback
Edited by Daniel Stoecklin, Jean-Michel Bonvin
Part of the Children's Well-Being: Indicators and Research series
This volume addresses the conditions allowing the transformation of specific children's rights into capabilities in settings as different as children's parliaments, organized leisure activities, contexts of vulnerability, children in care.
It addresses theoretical questions linked to children's agency and reflexivity, education, the life cycle perspective, child participation, evolving capabilities and citizenship.
The volume highlights important issues that have to be taken into account for the implementation of human rights and the development of peoples' capabilities.
The focus on children's capabilities along a rights-based approach is an inspiring perspective that researchers and practitioners in the field of human rights would like to deepen.
