 About the Book 

In the context of a growing global awareness of the significance of childrens rights and perspectives created by the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child, this edited collection of papers explores the extent to which childrens interests are finding expression in different societies in Western Europe. Its aim is to compare the ways in which social and welfare issues around childhood are being framed and realised, both within policies and legislation and through cultural practices. If, as is frequently argued, the child is a nations future, such a comparative project is timely, given the drive for a common European political identity.
