TRANSGRESSING CHILD RIGHTS: A RETREAT OF CULTURAL, SOCIAL AND MORAL VALUES

Childhood should be carefree, playing in the sun; not living a nightmare in the darkness of the soul.”

 

Children are the future custodians of sovereignty, rule of law, – justice, liberty, equality, fraternity and finally international peace and security. They are the potential embodiment of our ideals, aspirations, ambitions, future hopes. They are the ‘future shoulders’ in varied forms. It was only during the twentieth century the concept of children’s rights emerged. The rights approach is primarily concerned with issues of social justice, non-discrimination, equity, and empowerment. Children are a human resource, invaluable but vulnerable. It is because of the unique vulnerability of children that their rights are of priority concern nationally and internationally. The vulnerability of child is due to easiness to hurt, abuse, misuse, generally treat children badly and far less knowledge about what their rights are. Child rights violation isn’t a phenomenon triggered by a single factor but in fact interplay of multiple catalysts. These factors are interlinked, which means that a substantial defense of child rights will require not only comprehensive policy reforms but unprecedented attempts at changing people’s psyche towards the right of the child. Child protection is about protecting children from or against any perceived or real danger/risk to their life, their person-hood and childhood. It is about reducing their vulnerability to any kind of harm and in harmful situations. Child protection is about protecting every right of every child. It must also relate to children’s capacity for self-reliance, self-defense, and to the roles and responsibilities of family, community, society and state. The need to protect some children is certainly greater than others due to their specific socio-economic and political circumstances and geographical location. In this light, The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) of Government Law College, Thiruvananthapuram is organizing a TWO DAY NATIONAL SEMINAR on Transgressing Child Rights: A Retreat of Cultural, Social And Moral Values on November 21 and 22, 2019. The seminar envisages a discussion and presentation on three aspects namely Child Rights, Violations of Child Rights and Child Protection. Selected papers presented in the above referred seminar are included in this Special Issue.
