Blurb/Shorttext:
This book explores how the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) is translated into Egyptian law and examines its practicality when tackling the street child phenomenon. The first part assesses the theoretical and philosophical implications of the “child” and “adult” and its effects on the regulation of the human body, agency, and contemporary justice. It argues that the implications perpetuate negative repercussions on the concept of justice, while paving way for programs and services that support and defy the child-adult dichotomy. The second part examines how the CRC has been applied by focusing on the methods, implications, and differences of programs and services when availed to girls and boys. It explores how Plan Egypt contributes and challenges justice in relation to the State and law. Lastly, through this analytical engagement, this book examines pre- and post-January 25th published online news articles and argues that although these frameworks allow street children some room for agency, the ultimate outcome of contemporary justice goes beyond the perpetuation of the child-adult dichotomy and into the realms of governmentality and biopolitics of all individuals.
