oa Article 19 - Children's Rights in Africa : A Legal Perspective, Julia Sloth-Nielsen (Ed.) : book review

Volume 4 Number 2
  • ISSN :



This collection is anchored in an African conception of children's rights and the law, and reflects contemporary discourses taking place in the region of the children'srights sphere. The majority of the contributors are African and adopt an individual approach to their topic which reflects their first-hand experience. The book focuses on child rights issues which have particular resonance on the continent and the chapters span themes which are both broad and narrow, containing subject matter which is both theoretical and illuminated by practice. For instance, Daksha Kassan deals with the protection of children from all forms of violence and Louise Ehlers and Cheryl Frank write on child participation in Africa.
