Abstract

This paper discusses child rights advocacy in the Arab world which can be frustrated by unequal development, religion-state nexus, continuing conflicts and a democratic deficit in the region. Despite these obstacles the paper concludes that the Convention on the Rights of the Child provides an opportunity to explore universal child rights approaches alongside Islamic child rights discourses.
