About this book

This volume presents the unique features of child abuse and neglect and discusses proposed as well as experimented protective measures to create awareness about child rights and their implementation. Divided into four sections, the volume discusses (a) the nature and prevalence of child abuse and neglect, risk factors and impact; (b) issues pertaining to child rights with regard to nutrition, health and education; (c) rights of children with disabilities, HIV/AIDS, and in circumstances like disaster and adoption; and (d) field-based experiences of researchers in protecting child rights and preventing child abuse. The most important contribution of this volume is in providing an analysis of the current legal scenario of child protection, emphasizing the rights of different sections of vulnerable children. Professionals and academics specializing in this area from different academic backgrounds and regions have contributed chapters to this volume, creating a global and multidisciplinary forum for discussion. This volume is important for a wide range of professionals and researchers from the social sciences, law, medicine, and behavioral sciences. It is also beneficial for policy makers and law enforcement agencies working with children.
