About this Unit
This unit examines legal responses (and lack of response) to children and young people. Historically, the child was viewed as an object of legal concern with few legal rights and inadequate means to access and participate in decisions and legal processes that affect them. Developments in international and domestic law indicate greater recognition of the child's capacity to make decisions and acknowledge his or her right to be heard in matters which will affect the child. This unit adopts a range of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives to critically evaluate developments in theory, laws, policies and practices relating to children and young people.
