Abstract:Aim of this paper is to identify children's rights and to see how far legislation in Zambia has attempted to transform these into rights enforceable by a Zambian child. The first part deals with the rights of children generally, considering four relationships through which they are likely to pass in the course of childhood: relationships with the family, with persons other than the family, with institutions dealing with the administration of justice, and with society at large. The second part concentrates on Zambian legislation. It describes the rights of the unborn child and the constitutional rights of the child (citizenship - fundamental rights and freedoms - laws relating to the social welfare of children). Since numerous pieces of legislation deal with the rights of the Zambian child, the author proposes to bring these various pieces together in one document.
