“Personally, I approached the book due to my recent scholarly interest in children’s rights, especially in a transnational context, as part of my research into the sociology of the family. … I warmly recommend the present work to all those interested in the topics of citizenship, rights and participation of children, as it provides the reader with the necessary overview required to understand the recent research directions in the field.” (Viorela Ducu, Romanian Journal of Population Studies, Vol. 13 (1), 2019)
