About the Modules

The five children’s rights modules introduce students to key issues, questions and debates in children’s rights scholarship and research.  They are organized around the three categories of rights in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC): protection, provision and participation rights. Each module can be used as part of a wide range of courses, programs and institutions. What makes these modules unique is that they feature the Hon. Landon Pearson, who shares her insights and experience as the former “Children’s Senator” and one of Canada’s foremost advocates on children’s rights. Materials used in the modules are drawn from Pearson’s extensive collection of books, documents, and reports on children’s rights comprising over 10,000 documents amassed over her career that now reside in the Landon Pearson Resource Centre for the Study of Childhood and Children’s Rights (LPC) at Carleton University
