NEW!! 2019 CALL FOR PAPERS
Canadian Journal of Children’s Rights / Revue canadienne des droits des enfants
2019 Special Issue: Disability and Children’s Rights: Reflecting on the CRC 30 Years and Beyond.
Guest Editors: Dr. Xuan Thuy Nguyen and Dr. Claudia Mitchell
The Canadian Journal on Children’s Rights (CJCR) invites interested contributors to submit articles to its special themed issue entitled ‘Disability and Children’s Rights: Reflecting on the CRC–30 Years and Beyond’. In marking the 30-year anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), this theme issue will focus on children with disabilities and human rights in Canada and across transnational borders. Globally, one in twenty children live with some significant disabilities–many of them a product of inadequate food, inaccessible heath care, clean water, and other basic needs that have impacts on their overall growth and well-being (UNICEF, 2013). Mass migration, enhanced border control, and aggressive policies that separate children from their parents in the United States, Australia, and across the European borders have constituted and increased children’s statelessness (Balint, 2016; Boyden & Hart, 2007; Pisani & Grech, 2017). These human conditions have deprived these children from their right to have rights (Arendt, 1968)–the rights of every individual to belong to their political communities.
