Lead
Dans le domaine des droits de l'enfant, le travail des enfants et les droits des enfants travailleurs ont reçu une attention particulière. En réclamant le respect de leur droit de travailler dans la dignité, les organisations d'enfants travailleurs ont essayé d'influencer les débats politiques locales et globales sur la meilleure façon de prendre en compte les intérêts des enfants travailleurs. Au cours des 20 dernières années, des discussions ont eu lieu au niveau international entre une perspective dominante sur le travail des enfants défendu par les organisations intergouvernementales telles que l'OIT et l'UNICEF qui cherchent à abolir tout travail des enfants, et la revendication de reconnaître les conceptualisations des enfants travailleurs eux-mêmes de leurs droits défendu par des organisations de base d'enfants travailleurs.
Lay summary

Le débat sur le travail des enfants et les enfants travailleurs propose un domaine prometteur pour explorer comment les enfants et les organisations d'enfants s'engagent dans l'espace entre les conceptions locales et internationales des droits de l'enfant. Les études empiriques sur les opinions et la compréhension de leurs droits et de leurs traductions par les enfants seront entreprises pour approfondir les relations entre les concepts droits vivants, justice sociale et traductions. Ces trois notions offrent un cadre conceptuel original qui vise à mieux comprendre les façons complexes comment les droits de l'enfant entrent en jeu dans le développement international.

Afin de suivre les trajectoires des opinions locales et la compréhension de leurs droits par des enfants, le projet se concentrera sur les rencontres entre des organisations d'enfants travailleurs avec les acteurs locaux et internationaux ainsi que sur ??les parcours de la revendication de reconnaître le droit des enfants à travailler dans la dignité. A partir d'une étude des fondements moraux de pratiques locales d'enfants travailleurs, l'étude suivra leurs contacts avec les acteurs institutionnels puissants et les positions officielles sur l'abolition du travail des enfants. Le projet étudiera comment les revendications des enfants ont eu un impact sur, ou ont été touchés par d'autres acteurs qui élaborent les politiques du travail des enfants.

Voici les questions de recherche centrales de ce projet interdisciplinaire: Comment est-ce que les points de vue des enfants sur leurs droits (droits vivants) circulent dans les lieux transnationales? Comment est-ce que ces perspectives interagissent avec des perspectives antagonistes défendues par des acteurs transnationaux? Et comment est-ce que des connaissances de ces interactions enrichissent la compréhension du continuum entre les traductions locaux et internationaux des droits des enfants?

Lay Summary (Englisch)

Lead
Within the field of children's rights, child labour and the rights of working children have received widespread attention. By claiming respect for their right to work in dignity, working children's organisations have tried to influence both local and global policy debates on how to best take into account working children's interests. Over the last 20 years, discussions have taken place in international policy realms between a dominant abolitionist perspective on child labour, which is upheld by intergovernmental organisations such as the ILO and UNICEF, and the claim to recognise working children's own conceptualisations of their rights as defended by grass-roots working children's organisations.
Lay summary

The debate on child labour and working children offers a promising domain to explore how children and children’s organizations engage the in-between space between local and international understandings of children’s rights. Empirical studies of children's opinions and understandings of their rights and their translations will be undertaken to further explore the interrelations and flux between the concepts living rights, social justice and translations, an original conceptual framework that aims to better understand the complex ways in which children’s rights come into play in international development (Hanson & Nieuwenhuys, 2013).

In order to follow the trajectories of children’s local opinions and understanding of their rights, the project will concentrate on the encounters of working children’s organizations with local and global actors and on the travels of the claim to recognise children’s right to work in dignity. Starting from a study of the moral foundations of working children's local practices, the study will follow their contacts with powerful institutional actors and official positions on the abolition of child labour. It will investigate how children's claims have had an impact on, or have been impacted by, other actors and discourses in the child labour policy making network, in which working children have had minor access.

This interdisciplinary research project's central research questions ask How children’s perspectives on their rights (living rights) circulate in transnational realms? And in what way these perspectives interact with possibly competing perspectives upheld by transnational actors? How can insights into these interactions contribute to enrich our understanding of the continuum between local and international translations of children’s rights?

Abstract

The research project aims to study the trajectories of local conceptualisations of children’s rights within a larger network that brings together child rights actors and discourses on children’s rights. Empirical studies of children's opinions and understandings of their rights and their translations will be undertaken to further explore the interrelations and flux between the concepts living rights, social justice and translations, an original conceptual framework that aims to better understand the complex ways in which children’s rights come into play in international development (Hanson & Nieuwenhuys, 2013).In order to follow the trajectories of children’s local opinions and understanding of their rights, the project will concentrate on the encounters of working children’s organizations with local and global actors and on the travels of the claim to recognise children’s right to work in dignity. Starting from a study of the moral foundations of working children's local practices, the study will follow their contacts with powerful institutional actors and official positions on the abolition of child labour. It will investigate how children's claims have had an impact on, or have been impacted by, other actors and discourses in the child labour policy making network, in which working children have had minor access. The research will give particular attention to the interstitial space between local perspectives and the points of view adopted by staff of cosmopolite international organizations, where dominant child labour regulations and policies are designed and gain official status.From the interdisciplinary dialogue on the combined findings of the studies in the field of child labour, the project wishes to engage with the central research questions that can be formulated as follows:How do children’s perspectives on their rights (living rights) circulate in transnational realms? In what way do these perspectives interact with possibly competing perspectives upheld by transnational actors? How can insights into these interactions enrich our understanding of the continuum between local and international translations of children’s rights?The three parts of the study offer the opportunity to investigate in detail practices related to the regulation and the policies in the field of children’s rights and concern (1) the empirical study of the opinion of working children and their organizations; (2) the empirical study of discourses on working children’s right to work in dignity; and (3) a theoretical study of the translation of children's perspectives on their rights. It is the project’s contention that the combined insights derived from these three interrelated parts will enable to deepen our empirical and theoretical knowledge on how children's conceptualisations of their rights develop in interaction within a larger web of local and global actors and the discourses they produce.
