Pages 18

This volume takes a critical approach to children’s rights. We have identified the key components of such an approach in the introduction.Here,we illustrate, refine or revisit some of these components in light of the contributions to this Handbook. After a fresh look at notions of childhood, we address a context-specific approach, interdisciplinary dialogue and critiques of children’s rights. At the very end of this conclusion, we explore how a field of critical children’s rights studies may evolve.
