Rights Streams aspires to support the process of bringing children’s presence and agency as subject of human rights into being by driving new ways of seeing and acting. The project was born of a doctoral probe of peace processes from a juristic, human rights and child right perspective. The probe’s staged findings — as developed in Law of Peace and Children's Human Rights inspired each of the project’s collection of thematic streams. The collection of streams reflect my particular interest in supporting respect, protection and fulfilment of children’s human rights. My interest in this subject is undergirded by a blend of applied and academic experience supporting the fulfilment of international human rights law through international research and advocacy projects. In this capacity, I have led and coordinated projects in Europe, southern and eastern Africa and Asia for organisations such as the International Labour Office, The African Child Policy Forum and Cross-European GENOVATE Consortium. It carries with it broader expertise of international human rights law, and includes varied experience facilitating human rights based change of domestic law and practice by (i) supporting rights-holders to claim their rights, and (ii) duty bearers to comply with their human rights obligations and commitments. Get in touch if you have any questions — and thank you for visiting Rights Streams.
