Children's Human Rights at School - As Formulated by Children

2016 (English)In: The International Journal of Children's Rights, ISSN 0927-5568, E-ISSN 1571-8182, Vol. 24, no 3, 657-677 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article explores 8- and 12-year old children’s own views on their rights in school. The aims of the paper are to expand the understanding of what human rights mean to children in the school setting, and to contribute to new ways of thinking about rights for children. Human rights theorising points to the temporary status of what we currently understand as human rights and the various ways in which human rights grow and change. However, children’s perspectives have rarely been used to question or develop human rights thinking. Responding to this, the article specifically seeks to represent children’s understanding of rights. Based on interviews with 32 children, a number of children’s claims for rights at school are identified and elaborated. Most rights the children claim fit into the established human rights framework, and some of the rights the children express go beyond this framework.
