Abstract in another language

Does the promulgation of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child radically change the conception of childhood within African communities? Does it need to? This article attempts to answer these questions through a critical discussion of children's rights and childhood within African communities and attempts to place the Charter within these twin debates. This is in view of the fact that no assessment of children's rights and welfare would be complete without examining philosophical and jurisprudential analyses of children's rights and childhood.
