"Escape From Childhood is Holt’s attempt to go beyond school reforms to show ways that society as a whole can help children learn and grow into responsible adults. It examines our peculiar institution of childhood, one that systematically denies young people responsible choices, while expecting them to assume this same responsibility at an arbitrarily determined age, and proposes many ideas we can implement that would make society more welcoming to young people"--

A new edition of John Holt's radical book about everybody's freedom. When children are kept in the walled garden of childhood, outside the world of human experience, they learn to manipulate the garden keepers. Further, how many of today's families have become a prison for both parents and children alike? Holt asks the reader to confront the issues of letting children have equal treatment under the law, the right to be legally responsible for their lives and acts, the right to do, in general, what any adult can legally do. Holt describes how our responses to these issues can lead us to family relationships based not on parental control but on the joy of shared experience and responsibilities.

Children make up half of the world’s refugees and over 40 per cent of the world’s asylum seekers. However, children are largely invisible in historical and contemporary refugee law. Furthermore, there has been very limited interaction between the burgeoning children’s rights framework, in particular the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), and the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (Refugee Convention). This book explores the possibility of a children’s rights approach to the interpretation of the Refugee Convention and within that what such an approach might look like. In order to construct a children’s rights approach, the conceptualisations of children outside the legal discipline, within international children’s rights law and then within refugee law and refugee discourse are analysed. The approach taken is socio-legal and comparative in nature and the suitability of the Refugee Convention as a framework for the interpretation of child claims is examined. The book analyses to what extent the Refugee Convention is capable of dealing with claims from children based on the modern conceptualisation of children, which is underscored by two competing ideologies: the child as a vulnerable object in law to be protected and the child as subject with rights and the capacity to exercise their agency. The influence each regime has had on the other is also analysed. The work discusses how a children’s rights approach might improve outcomes for child applicants. The book makes an original contribution to child refugee discourse and as such will be an invaluable resource for academics, researchers and policymakers working in the areas of migration and asylum law, children’s rights and international human rights law.
