Abstract in another language

This paper reports on the author's work in analysing the provisions of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child from both international law and anthropological perspectives. It explains the methodological choices and their justification. The author concludes with an assessment of the role of children in empirical research and examines the points of intersection between the child rights approach and that of socio-legal research. The fieldwork for the empirical research discussed here was carried out in Malawi.
