Abstract

Under the auspices of the UN Convention on Children's Rights, there is a growing interest on research on substantial children's rights, their implementation and tutelage. Lesser consideration has been given to children's perceptions of their own rights, and to parents' attitude and behaviour about their own children' rights. The papers we propose take up both subjects at generational level and intergenerational level, confronting children, parents and school teachers. We plan to report the findings of a research carried on in 2001-2002 to appraise how children are aware of their own rights, and to explore if there is any relationship between adults attitude and behaviour and what children think about their rights. the role of adults . Data have been collected on about 1500 school-children aged 9 to 13 living in Molise - a Regione located in Central-Southern Italy - on their parents and their school teachers. Three different questionnaires have been submitted to the subjects of the research. The one addressed to children is focused on 16 items exposing children to contrasting everyday life situations concerning their own rights in opposition to other children's and adults' rights; five more items are addressed to highlight their own conception of rights. A second questionnaire has been submitted to children's parents (just one of the two), trying to grasp their attitude and behaviour with respect to their children's rights. Finally, a third questionnaire has been submitted to the children school teachers to investigate the extent to which the school is attentive and active in promoting, disseminating and e and warranting children's rights.
