    The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child: Relevance and Application to Pediatric Clinical Bioethics.Gerison Lansdown, Laura Lundy & Jeffrey Goldhagen - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):252-266.
    The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child is among the most comprehensive of all international human rights covenants. It was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in 1989, following a decade of discussion and debate relating to its content, and has now been ratified by every nation in the world except the United States. This level of endorsement and broad acceptance of its provisions establishes the articles of the CRC as global norms for the treatment of children and (...)

    Advancing the Synergy Between Pediatric Bioethics and Child Rights.Alissa Swota, Jeffrey Goldhagen & Cheryl D. Lew - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):247-251.
    The manuscripts in this issue of Perspectives in Biology and Medicine reflect the work of an international group of pediatric bioethicists and child rights advocates who convened in March 2014 to pursue several questions related to the intersection of pediatric bioethics and child rights. The prequel for the Symposium involved several years of dialogue between the editors of this volume—dialogue through which it became clear that there was much to be learned about our respective disciplines and how they might inform (...)

    Beyond Bioethics: A Child Rights–Based Approach to Complex Medical Decision-Making.Katherine Wade, Irene Melamed & Jeffrey Goldhagen - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):332-340.
    The case of Baby G raises some of the most difficult decisions confronting parents and health-care professionals. Given the context-specific nature of most medical decisions affecting children, the principles and standards of child rights and the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child will not clearly articulate the best interests of the child in every situation. A child rights–based approach will, however, provide the factors that must be considered, methods for their analysis, and the procedural safeguards that must surround (...)

    Toward a Child Rights Theory in Pediatric Bioethics.Jeffrey Goldhagen, Raul Mercer, Elspeth Webb, Rita Nathawad, Sherry Shenoda & Gerison Lansdown - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):306-319.
    Despite the progress made in pediatrics over the past decades, nearly every metric of children’s health and well-being in the United States has deteriorated relative to other high-income Western democracies. This is in part due to American pediatricians’ slow response to the impact of social and environmental determinants on children’s health. It is well established that social and environmental determinants of health—the social, economic, political, environmental, and cultural conditions that influence the health and well-being of individuals and communities—are the primary (...)

    Following the Yellow Brick Road: Next Steps in the Synthesis of Pediatric Bioethics and Child Rights.Jeffrey Goldhagen - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):365-375.
    With more than a year to reflect on the accomplishments of the Symposium on “The Interface of Child Rights and Pediatric Bioethics in the Clinical Setting,” what remains is to synthesize what we have learned as a framework for further inquiry into the intersection of pediatric bioethics and children’s rights. Considered individually, the articles in this issue of Perspectives in Biology and Medicine present a kaleidoscope of seemingly disparate perspectives. However, viewed as a collective work, this issue provides a balance (...)
