Our goal

A world where children's rights are recognised, respected and enforced, and where every rights violation has a remedy.

Our organisation

The Child Rights International Network - CRIN is a global research, policy and advocacy organisation. Our work is grounded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Our work is based on five core beliefs

  • We believe in rights, not charity,
  • We are stronger when we work together,
  • Information is power and it should be free and accessible,
  • Societies, organisations and institutions should be open, transparent and accountable, and
  • We believe in promoting children's rights, not ourselves

Our priorities for the coming years are to:

1. Monitor patterns of children's rights violations globally;

2. Advocate for change by:

  • initiating policy discussions
  • challenging violations of children’s rights through campaigns and legal advocacy;

3. Engage relevant professionals in our work and document processes, experience and expertise for others to be able to replicate.
