Evaluation / Book review.
Commissioned by UNICEF and based on the practical experience of working journalists, what follows is an attempt to assist media professionals and others to consider how the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child might impact upon the way children are represented in and by the media.
Its purpose is to generate responsible coverage of children and the impact of adult behaviour and decisions on their lives, as well as to encourage media professionals to consider how best to protect the rights of children and help children to play a role in the mass media.
First published in 1999, a revised and expanded second edition was published in February 2005.
