Patterns of Human Development Indicators across Constitutional Analysis of Children's Rights to Protection, Provision, and Participation
Habashi, Janette; Wright, Lynne; Hathcoat, John D.
Social Indicators Research, v105 n1 p63-73 Jan 2012
This study examines children's images in constitutions and/or amendments as articulated in the Convention on the Rights of the Child while they intersect with the three dimensions of the Human Development Index (HDI) of 2008: life expectancy, educational index, and GDP. The connection between the images of the child and the fulfillment of the dimensions within countries represents the current childhood conditions and determines their future wellbeing. It is the interdependency of the elements of HDI and the premises of the CRC that potentially impact nation-state's developmental outcome with the process of rights. This study highlights the strength of the connection among the dimensions, and emphasizes the importance of considering children as vital to dialogue around human rights and a human development agenda.
