Human Rights and the Rights of the Child, a Panoramic View
Burke, Kenneth M.
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v5 n3 p333-349 Nov 2007
Recognizing the importance of the universal rights of children is critical in a differentiated and pluralist world, which, in coming together through the increase of global economic interdependence and consequent changes, will require a breadth of talents to maintain peace and cooperation. The paper draws on research from historical perspectives on human rights and the rights of the child. It proposes an analysis of children's rights as both positive and negative human rights that, in the case of the context of the right to an education, should include instructional practices that respect developmental, cognitive and intellectual capacities.
