The aim of this report book in Sociology of Law, (Research Report in Sociology of Law 2021:1) 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 spinoff effects through strategies for sustainability and dissemination of knowledge and experiences from international cooperation on implementation of children’s rights.

CRC Change Agents won a case on Child Rights in High Court in Kerala

CRC Change Agents won a case on Child Rights in High Court in Kerala

The Association for Promotion and Protection of Child Rights in India, APPROCH, is an organisation formed by the CRC Change Agents of Kerala, India, who attended the International Training Programme on Child Rights conducted under Sida, at Lund University, Sweden.
The organization filed a case in 2015 before the High Court of Kerala to prevent teachers of Aided Schools from contesting elections.
APPROCH´s point was that it was against Child Rights because teachers would be absent from schools for long periods during the elections and after the elections if they are elected to power.
The High Court has now, 24 February 2021, issued a favourable judgement in favour of APPROCH´s claim.
Aided Schools are schools run by private individuals or agencies. They appoint teachers of their choice but the salaries of the teachers are paid by the Government on a par with Government school teachers.
The judgement, which will benefit millions of children in Kerala, is a shining success story emanating from the Sida-ITP on Child Rights.
The 193 page judgement was issued by a Division Bench presided over by the Chief Justice.

Short on the Content

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a human rights legal document decided and adopted by the UN General Assembly in November 1989. This international convention has had a major impact on children’s rights, policies and legislation in many countries around the world. Another prominent feature of the development, however, is the lack of research in many areas on implementation of children’s rights. This underline the importance of a book like this with contributions from countries seldom represented with research in their own context.

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).
