Pilotti, Francisco J.
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v6 n4 p408-22 Nov 1999
Examines success in adjusting domestic laws in Latin America to standards set forth in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Maintains that there has not been comparable improvement in service provision to poor children, due to structural constraints limiting the pace of reforms. Provides historical clues for understanding current challenges faced by Latin American child welfare systems. (Author/KB)
