About this book

A timely examination of the plight of children and youths in developing nations. The chapters strike a balance between diagnostic analysis of the conditions of risk, with prescriptive ideas for approaching and intervening with marginalized children.

Reviews

Children's Rights and International Development sets the bar high for collaborative research on young people's rights. This well-written book offers powerful insights into the dynamics of children's welfare and rights across the world. Children's Rights and International Development is a valuable addition to accounts of how human rights can produce significant changes for vulnerable groups. Brian K.
