Re-righting Communities: A Sourcebook for Strengthening Children and Young People's Rights.
Campbell, Ruth; Britton, Bruce
This sourcebook has been written to help workers and activists consider how they can introduce the idea of children's rights into their work of supporting and developing community groups. The sourcebook focuses on: (1) practical ways of introducing children's rights using exercises; (2) case studies of how some projects and organizations have achieved this; (3) ideas for work in communities; and (4) a guide to other resources. Included are practical exercises, handouts, and a wealth of other tools including a comprehensive reading list on children's rights. The sourcebook contains five major sections which address the following issues: (1) why children's rights are important; (2) the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child; (3) making a reality of children's rights; (4) protecting children, providing for children, and enabling children to participate; and (5) planning, taking action and reviewing progress--using rights to build an evaluation framework. Three appendices contain the Articles of the UN Convention, a list of relevant organizations, and where to find more support, information, and resources. (SD)
