Abstract

The modern history of Irish constitutional jurisprudence on the child is one of systematic suppression of every means by which the child's rights could be vindicated. Irish constitutional law is a particular politics of the family written up. That politics draws on a conception of the natural order which perpetuates and legitimates the complete social dominance of parents over their children.
