todres finalProfessor Jonathan Todres shared his thoughts on international law and children’s rights in Oxford University Press’s March 28 blog “Addressing New Frontiers in International Law.”  “Although the first international instrument on children’s rights – the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child – was adopted in 1924, adults are still learning to think of children as rights holders,” Todres noted.  In explaining why children should be viewed as partners in the human rights movement, Todres concluded, “children’s rights…are essential to building just societies.”
