Daniella Zlotnik

PhD student, University of Haifa, Israel



Currently, I am a PhD candidate at the University of Haifa, Israel. My research focuses on children's political rights, political participation, and participation in public decision-making processes, from a children's rights perspective. I am also an attorney, working as Deputy Legal Advisor and Head of Research and Policy at the National Council for the Child (CSO) in Israel. I have many years of experience in child and youth-centered projects at the national and International arena, as well as experience in legal research and academic teaching on international, European and Israeli child law issues.
