It aspires to....

Rights Streams aspires to support the process of bringing children’s standing as subject of human rights into being. International human rights law’s composite rights are grounded on 'the dignity and worth' of each member of the human family. The standing it generates: (a) affirms children's presence and agency in our law and state based world; and (b) supports children to survive and thrive in a multiplicity of ways. The research inspiring Rights Streams however suggests this standing is often under-qualified. Yet the rights based process it yields brings children into being — and in doing so, generates a wellspring of data that has the potentiality to drive more responsive and effective measures for giving effect to their rights. It thus offers a beacon for (a) supporting duty bearers to comply with their broader obligations, and (b) guiding responses to the complex human rights challenges yielded by our mutable and fragile twenty first century world. The collection of streams offered here aspire to support the process of bringing the law alive by driving new ways of seeing and acting.
