Debates about childrenÃ¢ÂÂs rights not only concern those things that children have a right to have and to do but also our broader social and political community, and the moral and political status of the child within it.
This book examines childrenÃ¢ÂÂs rights and citizenship in the USA, UK and Australia and analyses the policy, law and sociology that govern the transition from childhood to adulthood. By examining existing debates on childhood citizenship, the author pursues the claim that childhood is the most heavily governed period of a liberal individualÃ¢ÂÂs life, and argues that childhood is an intensely monitored period that involves a Ã¢ÂÂpolitics of becoming adultÃ¢ÂÂ. Drawing upon case studies from the USA, the UK and Australia, this concept is used to critically analyse debates and policy concerning childrenÃ¢ÂÂs citizenship, criminality, and sexuality. In doing so, the book seeks to uncover what informs and limits how we think about, talk about, and govern childrenÃ¢ÂÂs rights in liberal societies.
This book will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, governance, social policy, ethics, politics of childhood and public policy.
