As an active effort at integration we would be requesting you to not just be the speakers of your session but also be discussants and facilitators of other sessions. The consultation thus is prompted by the need to make the linkages between various areas of child rights and consequently acquire a rounded understanding of the field.
Coupled with the problem of issue specialization is the difficulty of sectoral perspective which contributes to a fractured understanding of child rights. There is often a chasm between the governmental and nongovernmental between the academic and activists perspective towards child rights. In order to aid understanding, as only with such understanding can any kind of consensus be reached, we have tried to provide representation to varied perspectives at this consultation. Excep tfor students from NALSAR, we have not invited children themselves at this consultation. Such an effort could be made on the strength of the understandings reached at this Consultation.
