Child Friendly Cities
A child friendly city is the embodiment of the Convention on the Rights of the Child at the local level, which in practice means that children’s rights are reflected in policies, laws, programmes and budgets. In a child friendly city, children are active agents; their voices and opinions are taken into consideration and influence decision making processes. http://childfriendlycities.org/
Children´s Rights in Education. Experiences from 16 countries in Global South during 18 years as researchers and teachers
The aim of this report book in Sociology of Law, and Child Rights Institute, Lund
University, is to gather, sum up and report, in a summarizing overview in an introduction followed by three concluding articles, our main experiences as researchers and teachers after 2016.
Two of the articles, “Mentor´s reflections” and “Looking back and looking forward”, have been published in Bodil Rasmusson, Lena Andersson, Agneta W Flinck,
Ulf Leo and Per Wickenberg (eds.) Realising Child Rights in Education (2016), Lund University.
That year, 2016, the English version of the Sida-funded international training
program, Child Rights, Classroom and School Management, was finished. However, there was a lot of continued work to come with Children´s Rights at Lund University after that.
This report could be viewed as an interesting example of how to achieve spin off effects through strategies for sustainability and dissemination of knowledge and
experiences from international cooperation on implementation of children’s rights.

International Studies on Enactment of Children´s Rights in Education. 30 researchers from non-western countries. Per Wickenberg, Bodil Rasmusson & Ulf Leo (eds.) Research Report in Sociology of Law 2019:3, Lund University.
This book has been initiated by researchers at the Child Rights Institute, Lund University, a research network with the aim to act for and support the rights of the child in different contexts, national and international, in research, in education or in other relevant practices. The Institute gather researchers to stimulate and to support new and continued research with a point of departure in the CRC. It provides an open and suitable arena for researchers to publish new material on implementing CRC in society. Invitation of researchers from our global network to contribute to an anthology was therefore fully in line with this ambition.
Fifteen new international studies on the enactment of children’s rights in schools and education are presented in this book. The authors are researchers from Colombia, Zambia, Viet Nam, Egypt, India, Kenya, Indonesia and China. They are researchers and scholars active in many different academic environments as research universities (Indonesia, Zambia, China, Kenya, Egypt, and Sweden), teacher training universities (China and India), National University of Education (Viet Nam, Colombia), Institute of Social Work and Health (India), District Teacher Training Institution, DIET (India).
