Abstract

This booklet has been prepared by the Centre for Child Law, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria. In 2018, the Centre for Child Law celebrates 20 Years of strategic litigation, research and advocacy in order to advance child law and children’s rights in South Africa. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child have played an important role in shaping children’s rights jurisprudence in South Africa. This booklet is accompanied by a flash drive that contains a number of General Comments issued by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. This is an updatable resource – as the Committees produce future General Comments and issue views arising from their communications procedures, the new documents can be added to the flash drive, allowing this small compendium to grow as the jurisprudence expands.

Abstract

This Special Issue of Children will focus on the migration arc of children from their country of origin through the experience in refugee camps and, finally, to their arrival in in a new home. It will examine the impact experiencing migration as refugees, immigrants or those internally displaced due to war and conflict has on children’s health. Explored topics include adverse health conditions, trauma and mental health, best practice and care coordination. It explores specific populations, such as children with disabilities, unaccompanied minors and child separation at international borders. This Special Issue also includes an examination of new clinical guidelines, the development of new care systems and advocacy for new policies. It also provides a summary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child’s specific mandate to provide for the most vulnerable children in need.
