Young persons’ reflections on their rights as children
Mar 23, 2023 — All day
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:
Young persons’ reflections on their rights as children in the context of aggression toward family/caregivers in childhood and adolescence
This presentation will shed light on young people’s perspectives on the importance of upholding children’s rights to express their views and to be heard (CRC Articles 12 and 13) in the context of Aggression towards Families/Caregivers in Childhood and Adolescence (AFCCA) in Canada. By centering youth voices drawn from survey and interview responses, the presentation will explore the experiences of both demonstrators of AFCCA, and their siblings from child rights and trauma-informed lenses.
