Book Description

Following on from her previous nine books on discrimination law, Anne-Marie Mooney Cotter now focuses on the goal of child equality. Examining issues of child labour and the relevant laws which are designed to protect the most vulnerable in our society, the book explores the primary role of legislation and the judicial system and its impact on the fight for child rights and the ultimate goal of the end of inequality. The book considers the major common law countries of Australia and New Zealand, Africa and South Africa, Canada, Mexico and the United States, and the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union Treaty in a historical and compelling analysis of discrimination worldwide. By providing a detailed examination of child rights and the law, it will be an important read for those concerned with equality and empowering those most vulnerable to discrimination, the children.

This book represents an important contribution to scholarship and will be an invaluable guide.'

It examines the discrimination suffered by children in labor around the world, looking at Australia/New Zealand, Africa/South Africa, North America, and Europe (Ireland and the UK), and reviews various legislation including the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union Treaties. This book will be an important source for those concerned with a global perspective of child discrimination and its impact on inequality.' Laurence Nolan, Howard University School of Law, USA
