Intercultural Approaches to Childhood

The topics of this module cover issues related to the diversity of children's lives around the world, including peer families, schools and communities. The concept of focus learning is to understand the interaction and influence of global and representative regions on children's education policies. Children's education is diverse due to various differences such as race, culture and gender, family structure, etc. Finally, the concept of child protection was discussed and questioned, especially the international attempts to protect children. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is used as the main reference and research code.


In this module I learned the complex relationship between a child's life and how children are considered in global decisions. It also helped me to explore the impact of immigration on children and its impact on schools; Intergenerational and intercultural relationships in interrogation families. I also have a clear awareness about the content of the UNCRC. This regulation protects children's physical and mental health, stipulates parental responsibilities, and protects children's right to education and participation. By reading related readings provided in this course, I understand the educational difficulties and achievements of children in representative regions. For example, child labour issues in developing countries such as Pakistan and Nepal, and in developed countries such as British primary schools, child protection institutions that establish school matters to protect children's right to participate.
