About this series
As part of its program of activities, the Loyola University Chicago’s Center for the Human Rights of Children supports a biennial Symposium on the Human Rights of Children to provide an academic perspective on important social justice issues affecting children and youth. This biennial program brings together scholars, advocates, and practitioners from around the world to present and discuss their work in understanding and advancing the human rights of children. Each symposium is chaired by Loyola University faculty and focuses on an important human rights issue from the perspective of the well-being and development of children. Professor James Garbarino serves as Senior Faculty Fellow for the Center for the Human Rights of Children and as Series Editor for the Symposium Books published by Springer. In this role he coordinates with the Center Director, Katherine Kaufka Walts, to produce a series of volumes that are of interest to a multidisciplinary audience of academics and advocates with an interest in social justice issues affecting children—among them professionals in health care, social work, clinical, child, and school psychology as well as human development.
