New research on child rights and education
The Editors of Human Right Education Review (HRER) are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by bringing you this key collection of six recent research papers on child rights. We hope that these papers from Australia, Canada, Norway, Sweden and the UK will make a small contribution to enabling child rights in education.
Please share this collection with your networks, students and on social media. And do add them, where appropriate, to reading lists.
