Child Rights Information Network Newsletter, n3-5 Jan-Oct 1997
These three newsletter issues communicate activities of the Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) and report on information resources and worldwide activities concerning children and child rights. The January 1997 issue profiles CRIN members in Costa Rica, Tanzania, Germany, and Switzerland; and provides updates on the activities of projects linked to CRIN, including the CRIN organizations database and the International Resource Centre on the Protection of Children in Adoption. The June 1997 issue profiles CRIN members in Canada, the United Kingdom, Uruguay, and Thailand; updates CRIN-linked activities of the Task Force on National Coalitions, the International Juvenile Justice Network, and UNESCO; and introduces "virtual desks," small groups of organizations that identify information on themes to be shared with CRIN members, such as child labor and commercial sexual exploitation. The October 1997 issue profiles CRIN members in Bangladesh, Senegal, Costa Rica, and the United States; includes updates of activities of the Task Force on National Coalitions and the CRIN Web Site Directory; and discusses the information available on the organization's Web site related to child labor and sexual exploitation. Each issue also contains an annotated bibliography of publications on children's rights and provides information on forthcoming meetings related to children's rights. (KB)
