This book considers the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a communication procedure as a key contributor to the realization of children's Article 12 Convention on the Rights of the Child participation rights. Weaknesses in the current formulation of the CRC communication procedure (its first iteration since entry into force 14 April, 2014) are examined and suggestions for strengthening of the mechanism in various respects considered. Actual cases concerning children's fundamental human rights in various domains and brought under various international human rights mechanisms are considered as hypothetical OP3-CRC communications/complaints. In addition certain domestic cases brought to the highest State Court are considered as hypothetical OP3-CRC communications brought after exhaustion of domestic remedies. In this way various significant weaknesses of the OP3-CRC are illustrated in a compelling meaningful case context and needed amendments highlighted.

Achieving social justice for children motivates researchers to explore issues that make a difference to children's lives. Advocates for children rely on research to help argue for policy changes, and policy-makers and practitioners look to research to guide their work. This book examines the relationship between rights, research, policy and practice, and how the links between them, can promote children's rights. Connections between the moral imperative of children's rights, and research, can lead to better policies, in the right political context. This international book outlines the relevance of theory and research to diverse areas of children's policy - including early childhood education, health, law, recreation, child protection and poverty - and shows the importance of smooth pathways and partnerships between researchers, child advocates, practitioners, and policy-makers. Scholars and advocates from Australia, Chile, China, England, Ireland, Kosovo, India, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland and the United States contributed chapters to the book.

Childrens human rights are regularly violated around the world. Child soldiers, child slavery, and child prostitution are some of the more graphic examples this books deals with, but hungry, sick, and orphaned children are equally at risk and more prevalent. In the United States, children suffer similar abuses, but some are unique to the United States justice system. Unlike most of the rest of the world, the U.S. is a well-developed western nation in which juvenile offenders can be tried as adults and subjected to capital punishment. This book brings together a wide array of original essays from a variety of academic and practitioner perspectives on human rights and the status of children. The details are disturbing the message, powerful We must vigorously extend the universal declaration of human rights to the most vulnerable humans of all--the children of the world, starting at home in the United States.
