In the Netherlands, children are being encouraged to stand up for their rights. “My parents are getting divorced. What’s going to happen to me? I’m being bullied at school.” These are just some of the problems the Children’s Legal Aid Centre deals with. Veronica Wilson looks at how far Dutch society is prepared to go to enforce the rights of children.
