Concept Note

The twenty-first century increasingly marks the free movement of merchandise and capital across national boundaries, with all countries bound together by global markets. The rapid growth of private capital flows over the past decade presents an opportunity for poor and developing countries to access a global pool of savings, technology, and management skills; but at the same time, it presents new policy challenges in terms of securing sustainable development and poverty reduction.

Globalization has powerful economic, political, cultural, and social dimensions as, on the one hand, it has opened up enormous opportunities; but on the other hand, it has not been able to spread these opportunities equitably among all social strata.

This has resulted, in several cases and especially in developing countries, in a renunciation of state responsibility or the retreat of the state from the provision of public service towards the welfare of its disadvantaged citizens like women and children.

There is a clear need to examine globalization and its impact from women and child rights perspective. This special issue will critically re-examine the current theory, law, policy, and practice of women and child rights and the potential for more women and child-sensitive globalization.

There is, in particular, the need to consider the potential for concurrent action on domestic and international fronts, comprising policy changes, specific child-focused programs, and child-sensitive laws and initiatives.

In this respect, the Convention constitutes a benchmark, yet it is also necessary to question whether the Convention and its implementation produce social justice for children.

Objective 

  • To provide a platform for stakeholders like organizations working at the international and national level, legislatures, civil societies, researchers, practitioners, academicians, activists, and policymakers to deliberate and discuss what is required to build strategies and to address the constraints in inclusive practices towards the betterment of the society.

  • Opening up a global discussion on ‘children, development and governance from a child rights perspective;
  • Research, advocacy, education, and policy engagement on women and child right;
