In this book Philip E. Veerman presents & discusses milestones in the evolution of children's rights, as well as the work of a number of important pioneers in this field in order to examine whether the concept of childhood has changed in our century. With Samuel Shye's 'Systemic Quality of Life Model' as a conceptual framework & uniform standard, more than forty Declarations & Conventions are analysed & compared. Veerman thus unfolds an exciting picture of the changing image of childhood, starting at the beginning of this century & culminating in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child of 1989, & the World Summit for Children of 1990. Finally the author proposes, together with Samuel Shye, a Declaration on the Rights of the Child based on the 'Systemic Quality of Life Model'. All the important Declarations & Conventions are reprinted as appendices. This makes Veerman's study a complete & up-to-date textbook on children's right. Dr. Veerman is the coordinator of the Israel Section of Defence for Children International (DCI) & Fellow of the Youth Policy Center of Haifa University.Justice for Children, 1 was published 1994 under ISBN 9780792326458 and ISBN 0792326458.
