Short Course: Children's Rights: Current Challenges in a Global Perspective (Online Participation)

Date: 12 April 2024

Time: 09.00 - 17.30 (UK time) TBC

Venue: Online


Course Details

This course explores current challenges to children's human rights, examining to what extent existing international and regional legal frameworks offer children effective protection against major contemporary and future global threats.

Bringing together experts from within BIICL, and other specialized scholars and practitioners in the field, the course is designed on the one hand, to provide participants a working knowledge of the international and regional conventions and 'soft-law instruments' for the protection of children's human rights. On the other hand, it aims to enhance participants' understanding of the limitations of the existing normative context in the face of current and future threats, and to discuss possible ways for improvement.

Training scholarships

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law is committed to equality and opportunity in the legal profession and to support greater engagement of under-represented groups in the legal profession.
