#9 Children’s rights in Australia and early childhood education

Lisa, Leanne and Liam are back again to discuss how well Australia is doing in upholding the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and how well we engage with rights in the early childhood sector. 

You’ll also hear Leanne interviewing Associate Professor Fran Press and Dr Sandie Wong about OMEP’s declaration on addressing the rights of migrant and refugee children. Thanks Fran and Sandie for joining us!
