Children's Rights. Director of European Research and Documentation Institutions.
United Nations Children's Fund, New York, NY.; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).; Childwatch International.
This directory describes the research and documentation activities in the field of children's rights for 182 institutions based in 30 European countries. It is directed toward researchers and practitioners to stimulate international communication and comparative research projects and facilitate international information sharing. The directory is based on a 1994 survey of European academic institutions to determine if children's rights was an active research area and if the institutions had developed specific information-handling capacities and knowledge bases in the area of children's rights. The data base resulting from the survey is available in a diskette version (Mac or DOS based) and also is located on the World Wide Web. Institute profiles in the printed directory describe the major research, print, and computerized documentation activities of the institutions and include contact information. Seven indices are included to facilitate information retrieval. An annex delineates the main provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Survey Questionnaire and Evaluation Form. (KDFB)
