Publisher Description:
Cities for Children will help urban authorities and organizations understand and respond to the rights and requirements of children and adolescents, looking at the responsibilities that authorities face, and discussing practical measures for meeting their obligations.It introduces the concept, history and content of children's rights and the obligations they create for local authorities, then looks at contentious issues such as housing, community participation, education and juvenile justice. The final section discusses the challenge of establishing appropriate systems of governance, and looks at the practical implications for the structure, policies and practices of local authorities.Written by the top experts in the field, and including a resource section which lists publications and organizations that can provide further information and support, this volume is a must for all involved in the planning for, and protection of, children within the urban environment.Published in association with UNICEF.
