Description

The year 2019 is the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This Convention represented a revolutionary change from the traditional paradigm of the consideration of children as objects of protection to their consideration as subjects of rights. In the course we will take stock of the 30 years of the Convention and its implementation in Spain, as well as future prospects. In order to do so, we will have some of the most important specialists in children's rights from an interdisciplinary, legal, sociological and evolutionary psychology perspective. Coordinator: Jorge Cardona Llorens, Professor at the Department of Public International Law and International Relations, Universitat de València.
