I am a social anthropologist who specialises in the human rights of children. In practice I have worked on the street with 'street children', child labour, young migrants, young people with HIV and AIDS. My work has taken me to around 40 countries, most of them developing nations, at least four of them have been in a state of conflict or war, thus taking me to the front line in two. My theoretical work began with migration; I have worked on, written and published on citizenship and generally best know as an 'expert' on the human rights of children. I have a broad knowledge of human and civil rights for all ages, environmental issues and have been politically active most of my life. I am an internationalist and supporter of the principle of European federalisation.
