Children of the Islands- A Situational Analysis in Andaman & Nicobar Islands

This book attempts to unfold the life experiences and perspectives of children in Andaman and Nicobar Islands and offers a comprehensive understanding about the social situations within the wider context. It also identifies areas of intervention for the state and civil society organizations for improving the lives of children in the Union Territory. Following the framework of child rights, in which children are seen as social actors/agents with rights and their own perspectives, the book captures voices of children in the local milieu.

The study explores varying issues and inequalities experienced by children cutting across age, gender, class and allied aspects and looks into the dimensions of right to survival, development, protection, and participation
