Children’s rights from a legal perspective: Children’s rights law
ByWouter Vandenhole
Pages 16

It may be fair to say that the legal discipline has appropriated a substantial part of children’s rights scholarship. Legal literature is mostly thematic, i.e. addressing a certain issue or right, although some general works exist (see in particular Van Bueren, 1998;Detrick, 1992;Hodgkin and Newell, 2007). Legal scholarship ranges from (sub-)national (Williams, 2013) to regional (Van Bueren, 2007; Kilkelly, 1999) and global publications (Apodaca, 2010; Drumbl, 2012).
