In 1989 the UN adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Soon most nations had signed and ratified, making it the most successful human rights instrument ever. Since parts of that convention appear to bestow new rights of participation in civil society on children it was assumed that it also opened the door to children’s citizenship. This remains to be seen. Some questions arising are examined here: one might, for instance, ask when does a child become a citizen? One essay thus looks at premature babies’ rights. Other contributors examine policy, practice and theory in other domains and through the entire age range from birth to 18 years in order to shed light on what is at present becoming a cutting edge issue for social scientists examining the situation of children and their own active role in shaping and changing contemporary society.
