Abstract: Issues connected with child development are increasingly prominent across the world, but the international image of children is increasingly Western-derived. This Working Paper explores the reasons behind this reduction in diversity. The authors conduct an overview of critiques in the international literature of early childhood development since the UN adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989, and present a review of key developments in Africa since the early 1970s.
