Overview for Growing Up in Slums

Children have been the subject of several scholarly studies. However, this unique volume focuses on the ethnographic description of the lives and experiences of the poor children living in slums. This child focused ethnographic study deals with various aspects of children's lives such as health, education, contribution to household economy. The new dimensions covered in the study are the use of space and leisure time by the children and the critical analysis of the convention on the rights of children in the context of slum. The study gives importance to the attitude, perception, opinion, experience and voices of slum children. This volume is useful for all students, researchers and academicians in the fields of anthropology, sociology and social work. It will also be useful for the policy makers, administrators and NGO personnel who are engaged in the development and welfare of children in general and poor children in particular.
