The course is based in the Faculty of Law but is open to graduate students from all faculties.

Description

This course enables students of diverse faculties to pursue the study of child rights at the graduate level, while allowing them to benefit from the strengths of multidisciplinary perspectives and to overcome their challenges. Organized by the Interdisciplinary Research Laboratory on the Rights of the Child (IRLRC), this course offers a multidisciplinary examination of specific questions related to various aspects of the life of a child, as well as the different realities of children: the child as a person and his/her identity, filial relations and family life, the child in the community, marginalized children, education and participation. Built around the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child, this course takes a multidisciplinary perspective which allows the student to delve deeper into the issue of children’s rights by bringing together points of view from law, social sciences, education and health.
