International Child Lawexamines and discusses the international legal framework and issues relating to children. Analysing both public and private international legal aspects, this cross-disciplinary text promotes an understanding of the ongoing development of child law, children's rights and the protection of the child.

Examining the theoretical background to the law, and providing a concise and clear overview of the instruments and institutions that protect children internationally, this text then focuses on key themes and issues in child law and children's rights. This new edition has been updated and revised throughout, including expanded material on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as discussion of recent landmark developments on the law relating to recruiting child soldiers as a result ofLubanga(2012). The third edition also includes a new case study feature that critically considers key themes and issues in international child law in a real world context.

Drawing on a range of legal and other disciplines,International Child Lawis a valuable resource for those in the course of study and research in this area.
