Last year ASI 2016 featured a curriculum stream, Child Rights-Based Approaches to Youth Mental Health, presented by the office of the New Brunswick Child and Youth Advocate. They have asked us to share information about an upcoming course that may be of interest.
International Summer Course on the Rights of the Child
6th Edition: Children, Minorities and Identity:
Understanding Articles 8 and 30 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
June 25-30, 2017 | Moncton, NB
Articles 8 and 30 of the UNCRC will form the basis of the 2017 summer session. The course will explore how children and young people forge their identities, not only cultural linguistic and ethnic, but also gender identity and other minority group identities. Participants will have the chance to examine the minority contexts with particular focus upon Official language minority rights, indigenous minority rights, immigrant and newcomer child rights, gender minority rights and other equality challenges in a national perspective, and also in a global perspective looking at challenges, opportunities and best practices worldwide.
This year’s themes will explore:
• Indigenous Childhoods
• Minority Language Rights for Children
• Migrant Children
• Forging Gender Identities
