November 2009 marks twenty years since the United Nations drafted and ratified the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (ICRC).
In this series, we explore what children's rights mean in Canada and reflect on the original goals of the convention. In Part 1, Professor Marshall, who has studied the ICRC's progression, talks about the challenges of truly implementing the ICRC in Canada for those who work with children, but also for policy makers and educators.
This episode also includes poetry on the topic of mothers and sons, as well as a reading of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child.
