Publication: ‘Children’s Socio-Economic Rights, Democracy and the Courts’

‘Children’s Socio-Economic Rights, Democracy and the Courts’ by Aoife Nolan was published in 2011.

The book focusses on the circumstances in which the courts can and should give effect to the socio-economic rights of children.

The author brings together and addresses a wide range of issues that have never previously been considered together in book form. These include children’s socio-economic rights; children as citizens and their position in relation to democratic decision-making processes; the implications of children and their rights for democratic and constitutional theory; the role of the courts in ensuring the enforcement of children’s rights; and the debates surrounding the litigation and adjudication of socio-economic rights.
