Abstract

Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child calls for state parties to 'assure to the child who is capable of forming his or her own views the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child, the views of the child being given due weight in accordance with the age and maturity of the child'. This paper will discuss the rights of children to express their views in the context of the Scottish legislative system.
