A Charge Against Society: The Child's Right to Protection
The third volume in the Children in Charge series examines changing attitudes towards children and measures currently in operation to protect them. The contributors analyse how the child's safety and well-being can be protected, while respecting their right to be involved and to have their opinions taken into account, and examine the causes within society for social malfunction in relation to children. They approach these questions with such diverse themes as working with street children in Brazil, the work of the Refugee Council with unaccompanied child refugees, research on domestic violence and parental access, the issue of child labour in Mexico, child abuse and the rights to information about their condition of the child with cancer.
