This series of children's rights modules are designed to be used as part of a course or for self-study.They introduce students to key issues, questions and debates in Children’s Rights scholarship and research. The modules are organized around the three categories of rights in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC): protection, provision and participation rights. Given the interdisciplinary focus of each module in the series, each one can potentially be utilized within a wide range of courses, programs and institutions.
What makes these modules unique is that they feature the Hon. Landon Pearson, who shares her insights and experience as the former “Children’s Senator” and one of Canada’s foremost advocates on children’s rights. Materials used in the modules are drawn from Pearson’s extensive collection of books, documents, and reports on children’s rights comprising over 10,000 documents amassed over her career that now reside at the Landon Pearson Resource Centre for the Study of Childhood and Children's Rights (LPRC) at Carleton University.
