We are all the same, but.. - Kenyan and Swedish school children's views on children's rights

This thesis presents a study on how school children in Kenya and Sweden express their views on children’s rights, in particular rights related to participation, non-discrimination, and education. The overall purpose was to explore the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, its claim to be universal and its relevance for children in various school and life contexts. Group interviews were conducted with 58 children, aged 12-15 years, from four schools. The theoretical framing for the study is anchored in the tradition of sociology of childhood.
