These two newsletter issues communicate activities of the newly formed Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) and report on emerging information resources and activities concerning children and child rights. The January 1996 issue describes the history of CRIN, provides updates on the activities of projects linked to CRIN, and summarizes discussion at the October 1995 meeting of the Facilitating Group (the group of organizations overseeing the development of CRIN). In addition, this issue reviews four children's rights newsletters, announces new information resources (Children's House on the Internet and Radda Barnen's Child Soldiers database), and features profiles of the following CRIN members and their activities: (1) Arab Resource Collection (Sherene Seikaly); (2) Child Workers in Asia (Taneeya Runcharoen); (3) Defence for Children International; and (4) Radda Barnen (Karin Rydberg). Also included is a questionnaire for organizations for inclusion in the CRIN database. The July 1996 issue provides updates on CRIN's activities, especially expansion into southern nations; the Internet project; and the organization's database. The activities of Children's House in Cyberspace, Childnet International, and SOS Torture are also described. Additionally, this issue describes a proposal for a new convention on child labor, presents information on upcoming meetings, and profiles the following CRIN members: (1) AMAL, Friends of Children Society, Sudan; (2) Concerned for Working Children, India; (3) Foundation for the Protection of Infancy Damaged by States of Emergency (PIDEE), Chile; and (4) Save the Children, UK.
