Quennerstedt A, Robinson C & I'Anson J (2018) The UNCRC – the Voice of Global Consensus on Children’s Rights?. Nordic Journal of Human Rights / Nordisk Tidsskrift for Menneskerettigheter, 36 (1), pp. 38-54. https://doi.org/10.1080/18918131.2018.1453589
First paragraph: In this paper we address the tendency towards consensus thinking surrounding the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child1 (UNCRC). Attention to contradictions and tensions within the convention are uncommon in children’s rights research. Through highlighting and elaborating on some of these contradictions, this paper seeks to contribute to a broader critical academic debate about the development of the UNCRC and its role in children’s rights research.
