Abstract

The lecture traces Lord Kilbrandon's legacy in the South African Child Justice Act's 'preliminary inquiry'. Other interconnecting lives and legacies of South African reformers such as Alan Paton, Charlotte Maxeke, Leila Reitz, and Nelson Mandela were explored. The lecture concluded with selected post-Constitution reflections on the holistic realisation of children's rights in South Africa are offered, in the context of contemporary discussions about Scotland's incorporation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
