This chapter lays the groundwork for and outlines the book’s main contribution, which is an evaluative analysis of the major systems, actors, conventions and practices that have been at the helm of global child rights agendas for the past three decades and will continue driving those agendas for years to come. It explains the book’s characterisation of these systems, conventions and practices as ‘the international child protection regime’ and outlines the status of this regime as one of the many possible approaches to children’s rights. The discussion also briefly summarises the main contributions each chapter makes to the book’s overarching argument.
