APRIL 12, 2022 - Parental Perspectives on Upholding Children's Right
April 12, 2022
The Interdisciplinary Research Laboratory on the Rights of the Child (IRLRC) and the Faculty of Law, Civil Law Section are pleased to invite you to a webinar as part of the Civil Law Section Lecture Series:
Parental Perspectives on Upholding Children's Rights in the Context of Aggression towards Families/Caregivers in Childhood and Adolescence
This presentation will shed light on parents’ perspectives and actions related to upholding children’s rights to treatment, health care, support and protection (CRC Articles 3, 18, 40), as well as to their rights to express their views, to be heard and to seek information (CRC Articles 12 and 13). These issues will be considered within the context of aggression toward families/caregivers in childhood and adolescence (AFCCA) particularly within adoptive, kinship and customary care settings. Survey and interview responses will also reveal how parents negotiate the best interests of all children within the families who are affected by AFCCA.
