‘Children need to be recognised as individuals, as opposed to objects of concern’ says Geoffrey Shannon, a leading family law expert, in the latest edition of the Children’s Rights Podcast Series (launched Monday 7 September), in calling for the strengthening of children’s rights in the Constitution. Mr. Shannon, who is also the Government’s Special Rapporteur on Child Protection, and Chairperson of the Adoption Board, believes that an unambiguous, strong statement entitling children to protection in the Constitution is vital for the safety and wellbeing of future generations.
