Listen to an expert on legal rights of children while you Write for Rights.
Join us on Zoom for an hour to learn about children’s participation with the law from Dr Holly Doel-Mackaway.
Dr Doel-Mackaway is a Senior Lecturer with the Macquarie Law School. Before joining Macquarie she has worked for the United Nations and various international non-government organisations as a lawyer providing specialised advice on international human rights law pertaining to children and young people. Dr Doel-Mackaway has also operated a child rights consulting practice for over 10 years providing children’s rights research, training, legislative and policy advice nationally and internationally.
Her recent book titled Indigenous Children’s Right to Participate in Law and Policy Development presents a model for reforming and developing Indigenous related legislation and policy, not only in Australia, but also in other jurisdictions. The model provides guidance about how to seek, listen to and respond to the voices of Indigenous children and young people.
We will add our voices to the Raise the Age campaign and additional Write for Rights petitions for children.
