Abstract :
[en] This paper analyzes the social policies that have been implemented since countries have been obliged to implement the human rights of children as recognized at the International level. If these rights are given to all children without distinction, their implementation occurs in a context of cultural, social and economic diversity. The nature of the laws and actions to be implemented will depend on the relative importance that a society will give to these rights. Focused on a doctorate research on policies relating to child protection in Burkina Faso (West Africa) and a postdoctoral research on child protection in Québec [in progress], this presentation seeks to put into perspective the contemporary challenges of child protection involving greater State intervention and family responsibilities.
