Children on the Boundaries of Time and Space in sub-Saharan Africa has come at the time when children's well-being is on the agendas of governments, policy makers, schools and community organisations. It provides an in-depth analysis of the relation between official children's rights and well-being policies and their implementation refracted through African as well as Western lenses. The content of the book is a departure from conventional stereotype approach to children's well-being analysis in sub-Saharan Africa. In addressing issues around children's rights and well-being, the book offers a reflection on the conflict between adult society and government welfare policies. The book also draws on existing knowledge about national and international efforts to change adult attitudes towards children. Analysis in the book demonstrates that there are both structural and operational problems in children's rights and policies governing their well-being in sub-Saharan Africa. This sort of work has been neglected since the last few decades and has created a gulf between government policy rhetoric and practice.

Children on the Boundaries of Time and Space in sub-Saharan Africa bridges that gap and reasserts the need for effective policy, material changes in resources and cultural change valuable to enhance children's ability to stay healthy, grow and learn to become responsible citizens.
