Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865438420, Paperback)In Africa, children and young people face crisis. Child death rates are rising, and educational enrolment is falling. Children are victims in every war. Millions of young Africans are contracting HIV and AIDS. Neglected by society, Africa’s youth are attracted to militarism and militant religion.
Young Africa pioneers new thinking on the rights of children and young people in Africa and offers new approaches to tackling the violation of the rights of young Africans. This book argues:
· We must take child rights seriously. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child lays down fundamental legal obligations on governments and the international community.
Young Africa provides a new framework for approaching the entirety of child rights with far-reaching implications for policies.
Preface by Urban Jonsson, Director Eastern & Southern Africa, UNICEF. Foreword by K. Y. Amoako, Executive Secretary, Economic Commission for Africa.
