Protection of Women and Children Rights: Issues and Challenges
Background:The twenty- first century increasingly marks the free movement of merchandise and
capital across national boundaries, with all countries bound together by global
markets. The rapid growth of private capital flows over the past decade, presents an
opportunity for poor and developing countries to access a global pool of savings,
technology and management skills; but at the same time it presents new policy
challenges in terms of securing sustainable development and poverty reduction.
Globalization has powerful economic, political, cultural and social dimensions as, on
one hand, it has opened up enormous opportunities; but on the other hand, it has
not been able to spread these opportunities equitably among all social strata. This
has resulted, in several cases and especially in developing countries, in a renunciation
of state responsibility or the retreat of the state from the provision of public service
towards the welfare of its disadvantaged citizens like women and children.
There is a clear need to examine globalization and its impact from a women and
child rights perspective. This special issue will critically re-examine the current
theory, law, policy and practice of women and child rights and the potential for
more women and child sensitive globalization. There is in particular the need to
consider the potential for concurrent action on domestic and international fronts,
comprising policy changes, specific child- focused programmes, and child sensitive
laws and initiatives. In this respect the Convention constitutes a benchmark, yet it is
also necessary to question whether the Convention and its implementation produce
social justice for children.
