Abstract

Human rights, and in particular the Convention on the Rights of the Child, have become a standard point of reference for professional practitioners and practices within and across nation-state systems of child protection. The chapter elaborates on how rights challenge professional practice, and how best to answer some of these challenges. It especially focuses on how to understand the child’s right to liberty once adulthood kicks in, and how development must be carefully plotted out to maintain the integrity of the person through to adulthood.
