VIDEO RECORDING

THE IDEA BEHIND THE CONFERENCE


The year 2019 is especially important when it comes to children’s rights issues. It was exactly thirty years ago that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The importance of this document cannot be underemphasized. On one hand, it is a signpost towards proper relations between adults and children, one that some have yet to discover, even today. On the other, it is a valuable resource that draws attention to the importance of the scopes of responsibility which guarantee children that their rights, including the right to general and special care and proper legal protection, both before and after birth, will be respected - as stated in the Preamble to the Convention.


The contribution of the Polish people to the creation of the “Constitution of the Rights of the Child”, as the Convention is sometimes referred to, is truly difficult to overestimate. Five decades ago, professor Tadeusz Smyczyński of the Centre for Family Law and Children's Rights of the Polish Academy of Sciences was the first person to begin a discussion on the international stage, aimed at drawing the attention of the world to the need of adopting such a document.


The anniversaries mentioned above further motivate us to properly commemorate the creation of the Convention and to consider how this unique document is perceived these days. Especially since we live in truly exceptional times when it comes to the subject of children’s rights. On the one hand, we can feel proud due to the fact that increasingly more institutions and standards aimed at protecting the rights of young people are being established every year. On the other, it is difficult to ignore the significant threats to children's rights, particularly, numerous activities aimed at minimising the role of parents in the unique and much-needed process of raising the new generations.


During our meeting, unquestionable authorities in the field of international law, family law as well as pedagogy and psychology will discuss these issues. The meeting will be attended by Experts from both Poland and abroad. In addition, specialists who will examine the importance of the very idea of children's rights, as well as the invaluable role of parents and family as the basic guarantors of the implementation of these rights will also take part in the discussion.


We invite all researchers whose research work concerns the topic of children’s rights to participate in the meeting. We encourage teachers, educators, psychologists, social workers, sociologists as well as lawyers and clerics to participate as well. During the meeting, we wish to pay special attention not only to the role of children’s rights but also the role of the family as a special environment that protects these rights.
