Organisation aims and activities: CRIN is a global children’s rights advocacy network. Established in 1995, we press for rights - not charity - and campaign for a genuine shift in how governments and societies view and treat children. We link to nearly 3,000 organisations that between them work on children’s rights in every country in the world and rely on our publications, research and information sharing.

Our Vision: CRIN envisions a world in which every child enjoys all their human rights guaranteed by the United Nations, regional organisations and national governments.

Further details:


- We believe that the only means of bringing long-term positive change to children's lives is through the strong and explicit promotion of their rights.
- We are not afraid to challenge harmful beliefs and practices concerning children. We recognise this will often be controversial.
- We believe that information is a powerful tool and that we are most effective and influential when we work together. We believe in freely sharing information and expertise to promote and protect children’s rights.
- We believe in transparency when it comes to making decisions that affect people’s human rights and lives, and with that belief in mind we strive to be as open as possible.
- We believe in the idea of open societies where everyone, including NGOs and other civil society organisations, can exist and speak freely.

We work to put children’s rights firmly on the international stage and at the top of national agendas. We campaign on specific issues, and also advocate for long term change and legal reform. We work in partnership with international, regional and national coalitions, and strive to provide accessible information and knowledge on children’s right to people and organisations around the world.
