Throughout much of Latin America the enactment of child rights legislation has proceeded slowly and intermittently despite early ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by all governments in the region. Efforts to enhance children’s rights have been hampered by a combination of economic and political constraints, and by conflicting views concerning appropriate policies and strategies of intervention. This special edition of the International Journal of Children’s Rights examines these issues, focusing on the difficulties, but also on the possibilities of enhancing children’s rights in Latin America.
