Theme of the Seminar

Children are tender hearts, they are innocent, they don’t know the meaning of life and its complexity. They live like a running water of a river which ends its soft and sweet water with salty water of ocean of society. They need our attention, care and all types of precaution. In the beginning of culture or society, life was not so complex and people believed in principle, moral, ethics, religion, God etc, so they started to use parlance like “child is the father of man” and “child is the incarnation of God”. But time changed, society became more complex and the colour of these parlances faded.

As minors by law children do not have autonomy or the right to make decisions on their own for themselves in any known jurisdiction of the world. Instead their adult caregivers, including parents, social workers, teachers, youth workers, and others, are vested with that authority, depending on the circumstances. Some believe that this state of affairs gives children insufficient control over their own lives and causes them to be vulnerable. Louis Althusser terms this legal machinery, as it applies to children, as “repressive state apparatuses”. Various institutions and structures such as government policy mask the ways adults abuse and exploit children, resulting in child poverty, lack of educational opportunities. and child labour.  On this view, children are to be regarded as a minority group towards whom society needs to reconsider the way it behaves. Researches have identified children as needing to be recognized as participants in society whose rights and responsibilities need to be recognized at all ages.

In the history of human rights, the rights of children are the most ratified. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) defines Child Rights as the minimum entitlements and freedoms that should be afforded to every citizen below the age of 18 regardless of race, national origin, colour, gender, language, religion, opinions, origin, wealth, birth status, disability, or other characteristics.

These rights encompass freedom of children and their civil rights, family environment, necessary healthcare and welfare, education, leisure and cultural activities and special protection measures. The UNCRC outlines the fundamental human rights that should be afforded to children in four broad classifications that suitably cover all civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights of every child i.e. right to survival, right to protection, right to participation and right to development.

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) was set up in March 2007 under the Commission for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005, an Act of Parliament (December 2005). The Commission’s Mandate is to ensure that all Laws, Policies, Programmes, and Administrative Mechanisms are in consonance with the Child Rights perspective as enshrined in the Constitution of India and also the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

In democratic institutions where everybody is conscious about their rights and protections, children too need certain rights and implementation mechanism for the protection of these rights. Children need an environment where they can develop their potentialities to the maximum. Laws are not the panacea for all social evils. Now we need a sensitized society with sensitized laws for the protection of children from different vices like child mortality, child abuse, child labour, child trafficking, child beggary, female foeticide, infanticide, child marriage, lack of basic facilities of education, recreation and development etc. Now it’s high time to evaluate child rights and protective provisions for children in socio-legal perspective.

In the light of above All Indian Rights Organization (AIRO) and Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Law College, affiliated to University of Lucknow endeavours to organize a National Seminar on 11 November 2016 to discuss child rights and child protection in socio-legal perspective so as to provide solutions to policy makers. This seminar will have deliberations in detail on above mentioned issues and how legal services and social attitudes are vital in protecting the rights of the children. Present seminar will pave the way for devising a practical and effective mechanism to deal with these issues and ensuring implementation of this mechanism.

The seminar will also have participation of the judicial and academic fraternity along with the administrative officials, members of the bar councils, representatives of government departments, NGOs pertaining to children’s rights and protection, paralegal volunteers research scholars and students.
