Child Rights Information Network (CRIN)
http://www.crin.org/
CRIN envisions a world in which every child enjoys all of the human rights promised by the United Nations, regional organisations, and national governments alike. (...) Our inspiration is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), which we use to bring children's rights to the top of the international agenda. We launch advocacy campaigns, lead international children's rights coalitions, and strive to make existing human rights enforcement mechanisms accessible for all. More than 2,100 organisations in 150 countries rely on CRIN's publications, research and information.

http://www.crin.org/email/crinmail_detail_popup.asp?crinmailID=4531
In this issue, you'll find the annual recap of the highs and lows for children's rights in the past year.
This report includes sections on the following:
* Juvenile justice (some States have lowered or proposed lowering the minimum age of criminal responsibility well under the age of 18).
* Inhuman sentencing of children, understood to include corporal punishment, life imprisonment and the death penalty.
* Human and children's rights defenders continue to be targeted for their activism.
* Governments continued to repress children's rights to freedom of expression and association in response to their demands.
* More govt. obstacles to children’s freedom to exercise their civil and political rights, notably their right to receive and access information.
* Corporal punishment of children (a number of African States are setting a pioneering example to those that still authorise corporal punishment of children by banning corporal punishment in all settings, including the home.
* The public outcry against covering up of child sexual abuse and the demand for accountability have led to new precedents around the world, with key court rulings and convictions along with large scale inquiries into alleged abuse in some countries.
* The UN Secretary-General’s “list of shame”, a list of the countries that violate international standards on children and armed conflict, has grown considerably over the past years.
* Some improvements in international justice.
* Children's rights in 2013 ("new changes, challenges and opportunities").

[Detailed month-by-month news of challenges and accomplishments in the area of of children's rights in the world during 2011 --- includes links for further study.]
In this issue:
Dear Readers,
Welcome to 2012 and our yearly look back at the highs and lows for children's rights in the past year. From the rise of landmark global instruments to the fall of long-standing dictatorships, 2011 brought momentous developments. While we celebrate positive legal reform in some areas of human and children’s rights, we also lament notable regressions. But, not letting these cloud our hopes for children’s rights in the year ahead, we look forward to what it has in store for CRIN and for children’s rights globally, including the mission to get States to ratify the complaints mechanism for children under the CRC! For a more in-depth recap of CRIN's work in the past year and the events that shaped it, check out our 2010-2011 annual report:

Dear Readers,
Welcome to 2011 and our yearly look back at the trials and triumphs of children's rights advocacy; from the dawn of new instruments, and the struggle to enforce them, to the accomplishments of joint campaigning efforts, there is much to reminisce! We also hope to stir up some collective inspiration for the year ahead to move beyond mirroring the world around us to forge an ever stronger advocacy network together with the members who make up CRIN.
Happy reading!
The CRIN Team
