(p.3) 1 The Place of Children in the Law
Children's Rights Under and the Law

Samuel M. Davis

Oxford University Press

This chapter briefly sets out the book's focus, namely children's rights. In a broader sense, as the title suggests, it is an examination of the relationships existing between children, their parents, and the state. Close observation of those relationships reveals that on a day-to-day, practical, functional basis they present a study of authority, a search for an answer to the question of who speaks for the child: parents, the state, or the child himself or herself. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   children's rights, child welfare, children, parents, state
