Abstract

The paper examine children's perspective on the various aspects of the children's right. After the review of other studies the authors focused on children's view of their rights. They test whether cultural and structural factors - namely age, gender, culture, as well as social context and living condition- influence children's awareness and thinking about their rights. Using data collected in Catalonia, Spain and Molise, Italy, they report minor dissimilarity between children from Molise and Catalonia, between boys and girls, and across children of different ages. Aside from age, however, they maintain that these differences are not as expected. They further argue that our children appear to live in a "flat world" where little make a difference regarding their views on children's rights. From these findings, the authors put forth some tentative hypotheses to inform future research on this issue.
