BACARES JARA, Camilo. An analytical state of the art of publications on children's rights in Spanish. Three bibliographic trends: Denialist, official and counterofficial. Derecho [online]. 2020, n.85, pp.473-515. ISSN 0251-3420.

This article aims to contribute to the state of the art of the rights of children and adolescents (NNA, in Spanish) in Latin America and Spain. For this purpose, 195 sources were analyzed, including articles, books and chapters of books written in Spanish, obtained through the databases and the search managers Scopus, Web of Science, Proquest, Mendeley, Ebsco, Clase, Redalyc, Scielo, Dialnet, Latindex, Academic Record, and The inquiries allowed to establish that in the literature produced in Spanish about the rights of children there are three research developments. In the first one, the texts that indicate that children cannot have rights or, in their absence, have to assign their ownership to an adult because of their vulnerability, irrationality and disability. In the second, the writings that replicate the Convention on the Rights of the Child or that reduce the discussion about the rights of children to legal language and its articles. Finally, there are those documents that problematize the CRC and its great myths using ethnography and sociology.

Keywords : Children's rights; childhood; international law; Latin America; Spain.
