Thanks to Nottingham Law Professor Aoife Nolan, I’ve learned that the law school’s Human Rights Law Centre is welcoming applications for its Summer School on the Rights of the Child, set for June 23-27, 2014.
To be discussed are regional and international legal regimes and institutions concerned with the rights of children. Topics will include violence against children, child participation, child poverty, children in conflict, and child rights monitoring and advocacy. The full program lists a host of expert speakers, not least among them Dr. Najat Maalla M’jid, appointed in 2008 as the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. (Her recent report, numbered A/HRC/25/48 and reflecting on the conclusion of her 6-year tenure, is here.)
