Tell me! considers the child as a seeker, an information seeker, and researches the role information plays in the child's developmental process. Information on how to become a full-grown human being is essential. Which sources are important to the child? Tell me! examines the extent to which these important information processes, as regards the developing child, are legally protected by a right to information. Perspectives are provided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the United Nations on 20 November 1989. The recognition of the child's increasing competence and participation, his free access to information, and freedom to form views and express them, require a multicoloured implementation of the Convention, practical examples of which are presented.
Tell me! is a scientific study drawing on developmental psychology, communication science and international law, but is easily read by following the philosophical leitmotif. Tell me! is important to anyone involved in human rights and children. It is also one of the rare studies on human rights in library and information science, from a user's point of view.
