Summer School 2014 - Rights of the Child
23 - 27 June 2014
The Human Rights Law Centre Summer School on the Rights of the Child will consider issues concerning the rights of the child that are a matter of current legal, political and societal debate, both internationally and comparatively. These include violence against children, child participation, child poverty, and child rights monitoring and advocacy.
The Summer School will devote sessions to international and regional child rights law, including the work of the international courts and treaty monitoring bodies mandated to consider violations of the rights of the child.
The Summer School is a highly interactive event in which all participants are encouraged to be fully involved. The training methods include Q and A and group exercises. The working language for the Summer School is English. All participants will receive an extensive electronic file of resource materials.
The Summer School faculty for 2014 are all highly experienced international experts on child rights, with backgrounds in advocacy, research and practice.
