An essential guide to understanding children's rights, this definitive volume co-authored by Angelina Jolie, Amnesty International and a leading QC explores the unique set of rights pertaining to individuals under 18 years of age.
Jointly written by Angelina Jolie and Amnesty International with Geraldine Van Bueren QC.
If you are aged under 18 you have your own set of human rights. Child rights are unique freedoms and protections designed for you. Governments should uphold them but all across the world they are violated. Know Your Rights and Claim Them gives you the knowledge and tools to claim your rights. It introduces them and explains why they matter in the real world. From gender and racial equality, to the rights to free expression, health, a clean climate and a sustainable environment, they are yours to claim.
Know Your Rights and Claim Them celebrates the difference young activists have made in every corner of the world, and shows you how to challenge injustice wherever you may find it. It presents expert advice on peaceful protest, raising awareness at school and in your community, starting your own campaign and getting those in power to listen, plus vital guidance on protecting your safety, digital security and mental health.
These are your rights. It is your right to know and claim them.

"This is an excellent book! What I like most about it is that one can just keep dipping in, it doesn't have to be read all at once and it is packed with information and deals with issues with which many teenagers will identify. It covers a very large field, it will educate, enlighten and encourage young people to take action, it will give them confidence and a sense of empowerment. It is a very important book which in time, hopefully, will help to change the world." - Mala Tribich MBE, child survivor of the Holocaust
"This is a must have for every school library… it informs and educates young people as well as being easy to read" - The School Librarian
