The Centre for Human Rights and Restorative Justice at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario is looking forward to welcoming scholars from around the world at our upcoming hybrid conference, Child Protection and the Rights of the Child. Taking place on January 27th and January 28th, we are bringing together an international and interdiscplinary group of senior academics, emerging scholars, and practitioners to explore patterns and changes in discourses, policies, and practices in child saving, child protection, and the rights of the child. The conference will include six academic sessions, one curriculum workshop, and several public events including the keynote by Crystal Gail Fraser: "Histories of Indian Residential Schooling: Approaches to Studying Institutionalized Indigenous Children during the Twentieth Century."
