Child Rights Information Network Newsletter, 2000-2002.
Khan, Andrea, Ed.; Greenwood, Laura, Ed.
These five newsletter issues communicate activities of the Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) and report on information resources and world-wide activities concerning children and child rights. The March 2000 issue focuses on children's right to education, assessing the matter form a range of differing perspectives, at international and grassroots levels; and highlighting the importance of the non-discrimination principle the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, particularly for disabled and for Roma and Traveller ("gypsy") children. The November 2000 issue explores the relationship between children's rights and macroeconomic analysis and policy and how children are likely to be effected by macroeconomic choices. The June 2001 issue highlights the U.N. Special Session on Children, the purpose of which was to review progress made for children since 1990 specifically by returning to the achievement of the goals of the World Summit for Children convened that year; and to assert a renewed commitment to children and develop a new global agenda for them in the forthcoming decade. The March 2002 issue considers how to take forward the"mainstreaming" of child rights and illustrates this process through a selection of case studies from around the world. The October 2002 issue explores the issue of participation in programs and projects, and reviews how far children and young people's participation has progressed, through a series of regional overviews and thematic case studies. The overviews present the state of the art in each region, examine key barriers to effective participation, and suggest specific recommendations, based on experience, to improve future practice. The thematic case studies describe examples of children's participation in a variety of contexts. Each issue also contains an annotated bibliography of publications on children's rights and a calendar of forthcoming meetings related to children's rights. (HTH)
