5 Introduction The Convention on the Rights of the Child incorporates the whole spectrum of human rights -- civil, politi - cal, economic, social and cultural -- and provides that respect and protection of all of the children's rights are the starting point for the full development of the potential of the individual in an atmosphere of freedom, digni - ty and justice. (Jan Martenson, UN Under-Secretary-General for Human Rights at the Convention signing ceremony, 26 January 1990) The European Survey on Research and Information on Children's Rights is the result of co-operation bet- ween Childwatch International, UNICEF and UNESCO. It addresses the needs of the Facilitating Group of the International Children's Rights Information Network for an overview of existing information sources on children's rights and Childwatch International's interest to create a world-wide overview of ongoing child research. The European Survey was conducted and funded by Childwatch International with additional funding and support from UNICEF's International Child Development Centre in Florence and UNESCO's Young Child and the Family Environment Unit. Child Rights Information Network The idea of forming a child rights information network on an international level was born in 1992 by a group of organisations engaged in child rights issues, including collecting, producing, processing and disseminating child rights information. A Facilitating Group was established consisting of representatives from: Defence for Children International, Human Rights Internet, the International Children's Centre (Paris), the International Save the Children Alliance, the NGO Group on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, Rdda Barnen (Sweden), Save the Children (UK), UNI- CEF (Geneva) and UNICEF International Child Development Centre (Florence). The Facilitating Group met informally to develop the network and to investigate in ways of improving information exchange to serve the needs of child rights organisations. The Network was formally est blished at a meeting in Paris in July 1995. The aims of the Child Rights Information Network are: to support and promote the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, at national and international levels; to contribute to satisfying the varied information needs of child rights organisations working at the gras roots, national, regional and international levels; to support child rights organisations in developing effective information systems and methods of information exchange, using both computerized and traditional networking tools.

6 Childwatch International - Network for Child Research Childwatch is an international network for institutions and individuals involved in research for children with the aim of initiating and coordinating research and information projects on children's living conditions and the implementation of children's rights. Childwatch is a response of the research community to the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the World Summit for Children. Researchers studying issues related to the lives of children and young people can provide important knowledge to facilitate and support the implementation of the Convention and accom- plishments of the goals defined in the Summit Plan of Action. Researchers can provide knowledge necessa- ry to define the situation of various groups of children, to develop indicators to measure accomplishment of the goals, and to propose and develop strategies to improve their situation. Childwatch International serves as an inter-agency consultative network of research institutions and professio- nals whose work and research interests relate to the children's living conditions in developing and indu strialised countries and to the implementation of children's rights. More specifically, the network has defined the following objectives: to promote an inter-disciplinary approach to child research and a holistic understanding of children; to promote more effective dissemination of the results from child research; to encourage and support a dialogue between researchers and decision-makers on the development of strategies for the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international agreements concerning child welfare; to identify new issues to be included in the global agenda for child research and initiate projects to address them. In addition, support to capacity building in child research is an important aspect of all relevant initiatives to reach these objectives. Childwatch activities are carried out and coordinated in close cooperation with key institutions of the network. Childwatch International P.O.

7 UNICEF International Child Development Centre The International Child Development Centre was established in Florence, in 1988, with financial support from the Government of Italy to serve as a centre for learning about children. The primary purpose of the Centre is to strengthen the capacity of UNICEF and its co-operating institutions to respond to the evolving needs of children and to help promote an emerging global ethic for caring for children. It helps to identify and to mobilize support for new directions and challenges, particularly emphasizing the "development" aspects of the child survival and development strategy of UNICEF and its co-operating institutions. The Centre provides a forum for international professional exchange of experiences and undertakes and promotes policy analysis, applied research and field experimentation, as well as advocacy of innovative strat- gies and dissemination of ideas towards the goals of child survival, protection and development. It is also to provide, on a selective and gradually expanded basis, special training opportunities for UNICEF staff, concerned government officials, and staff of other institutions with which UNICEF co-operate, including National Committees for UNICEF. Children's rights have been one of the main programme areas of the Centre since its establishment. With the remarkably rapid and widespread ratification of the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the setting of end-decade goals at the 1990 World Summit for Children, and the on-going preparation of National Programmes of Action (NPAs) to realize these goals on a country-by-country basis, work in this area has become increasingly urgent. The Centre's Child Rights Programme seeks to promote the effective imple- mentation of several important articles of the Convention. Initial research has focused on the general prin- ciples contained in the Convention's umbrella provisions', particularly Articles 2, 3 and 4. A number of the- matic areas are also being explored, such as issues relating to child labour (Articles 32) as well as the psy- chosocial effects of war on children (Articles 38 and 39). More broadly, the Centre is investigating mecha- nisms for monitoring the protection of children's rights, examining successful strategies and techniques of decentralization relating to NPAs, and supporting the development of a children's rights information network.

8 UNESCO - The Young Child and the Family Environment Unit With the help of UNESCO's specialized services, its roster of consultants, its partnership with sister agencies of the United Nations and the co-operation of major institutes and NGOs, the Young Child and the Family Environment Unit seeks to: improve access to early childhood care and education by making such programmes more widely avai- lable and accessible, and improving school-readiness; support family education and policy formulation by encouraging the participation and promoting the role of families and communities in basic education programmes; improve the content of early childhood programmes, in particular their design and quality. redirect and strengthen early childhood training programmes; strengthen the information base on early childhood by improving the availability and quality of info mation and data on young children and their families; promote the application of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child through aware- ness raising and advocacy. The Articles of the Convention which present a particular challenge to UNESCO are those relating to ed cation (Articles 27, 28 and 29) and culture (Articles 12, 13, 14, 17, 28, 29, 30 and 31). UNESCO promotes the Convention on the Rights of the Child by : acting as a focal point for enquiries concerning the Convention, sending out literature and attempting to attend the more important meetings on the Convention convened by the United Nations and NGOs; providing assistance to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in monitoring the Convention, in particular as it relates to education and culture. helping to translate the Convention into national languages. contracting original materials on the Convention, especially publications and booklets prepared for or by young children. assisting governments and non-governmental organizations in publishing children's versions of the Convention and guidebooks for teachers; co-sponsoring meetings on the Rights of the Child with the International Institute for Human Rights Studies (Trieste) the UN Centre for Human Rights (Geneva), the Arab Institute of Human Rights; co-operating with UNICEF on matters pertaining to the Convention, within the framework of early child- hood education; The Young Child and the Family Environment Unit UNESCO, ED/BAS/YCF 7 Place de Fontenoy, 75352 Paris 07 SP, France Tel: +33-1 45 68 08 15 or 45 68 06 86 Fax. +33-1 40 65 94 05 E-mail: [email protected] or [email protected]

17 Directory Overview The European Survey on Research and Information on Children's Rights Introduction With the entry into force of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, there is an increasing awareness of the urgency to develop an effective user-oriented knowledge base on children's rights. Information is a powerful and effective tool in promoting and implementing the rights of children. To make informed decisions concerning children, policy makers, international bodies and civil society need to have access to current, reliable and relevant information from many disciplines and from many sources throughout the world. The current survey is one effort to contribute to this process by providing information from the academic com- munity. Research related to the lives of children and young people can provide important knowledge to facilitate and support the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Research can provide knowledge necessary to define the situation of various groups of children, to develop indicators to measure achievement of the provisions of the Convention, and to propose and develop strategies to improve the status and actual implementation of children's rights. Background The survey was designed to seek answers from academic institutions in Europe to two broad questions: - Are children's rights an active concern of these institutions in their research? - Have these institutions developed any specific information handling capacity and knowledge base in the area of children's rights? A questionnaire was developed to compile information on research interests and activities as well as on information collections relating to children's rights. It is hoped that the data base based on the survey will serve as a resource to stimulate international cooperation and comparative research projects as well as to facili- tate international sharing of information. In addition to a printed version of the directory, Childwatch International has made it available for online sear- ch on the Internet using the World-Wide-Web format. This ensures easy access to the information in a user- friendly way. The World- Wide-Web location for the database is The database is also available in a diskette version (Mac or DOS based) for use on personal computers not linked to the Internet. The results of this survey will be combined with the results of a parallel exercise conducted by Human Rights Internet to survey children's rights information collections among NGOs. Recognising the value of a more detailed record of research initiatives, Childwatch International is now developing -- in co-operation with key institutions in the field of child research -- a world-wide interactive data-base on ongoing child research, based on the experience from the European Survey. The format will be the World-Wide-Web and the questionnaire will be placed on-line for immediate registration and updating. 21

18 CHILDREN'S RIGHTS EUROPEAN DIRECTORY Methodology The European Survey used a questionnaire based on the one developed by Human Rights Internet for the Survey of NGOs Information on the Rights of the Child. 700 questionnaires were mailed to academic institu- tions in Europe in June 1994, asking whether they had any institutes or departments wholly or partly involved in research on child rights related issues. 590 of the institutions were located in Western Europe, the rest in Russia, Central and Eastern Europe. The cover letter asked for the questionnaire to be forwarded to and ans- wered by the institute(s) or department(s) involved with children's issues. Follow-up mailings were done in August and September 1994. The questionnaire consisted of four parts, asking for: - basic information about the institution; - research interests and activities relating to children's rights; - handling of information relating to children's rights; and - technical information on computerised databases. To make easy reference to the various Convention articles, the questionnaire used the same clustering as deve- loped by the Committee on the Rights of the Child in the Guidelines for Reporting. Survey Findings The Directory contains 182 institutions from 30 countries in Europe. Types of Institutions Among respondents, 81% defined themselves as Public and 12% as Private Institutions. Asked for further spe- cification, the answers were as follows: 8% Child research institute 17% Child research unit or project within an institution 10% University department wholly concerned with children 47% University department partially concerned with children 5% Research policy institution or organisation Scope of Activities When asked to identify the scope of their activities, respondents gave the following answers: 24% Local 89% National/Federal 30% Regional 61% International Research Activities The database covers all research areas indicated in the questionnaire. There are no areas not covered, although only 6 respondents reported research interests in Article 11 - Illicit transfer and non-return and 7 in Article 35 - Sale, trafficking and abduction. The highest reporting was on Article 23 - Disabled children (102 respondents), Article 2 - Non- discrimination (90 respondents) and Article 29 - Aims of education (87 respondents). For further details, see table 1 for the entire distribution of responses. Ongoing Projects 44% of the respondents provided titles of ongoing research projects related to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The projects relate to a wide variety of issues concerning children's rights. For a full list of pro- jects, see the Index of Ongoing Research Projects at the end of the Directory. 22

19 DIRECTORY OVERVIEW Library/Documentation Activities 69% of the respondents reported that they have a collection on children or children's rights. Areas covered by Information Collections The database covers all subject areas related to the Convention as indicated in the questionnaire. There are no areas not covered, although only 10 respondents reported Article 11- Illicit transfer and non-return as covered by their information collections. The highest reporting occurred on Article 1 - Definition of the child (77 respondents), Article 28 - Education (76 respondents) and Article 29 - Aims of education (74 respondents). For further details, see table 2 for the entire distribution of responses. Services offered When asked about the kind of services their documentation centre/library offers, the following answers were provided: 47% Documentation centre open to public 34% Loans of documents 35% Database searches in-house 25% Database searches on-line 25% Bibliographic abstracts 44% Photocopying 22% Selective dissemination of information 35% Inter-library loans 27% Research Computerized databases 49% of the respondents reported that their documentation centre or library is computerized. 20% of them have on-line access to their databases. 23

24 CHILDREN'S RIGHTS EUROPEAN DIRECTORY The Directory of European Research and Documentation Institutions on Children's Rights The Directory of European Research and Documentation Institutions on Children's Rights describes the major research and documentation activities on children's rights of 182 institutions based in 30 European countries, along with pertinent data on their computerized information activities. The information contained in the profiles was provided by the institutions themselves. All responsibility for this information thus remains with the institutions responding to the survey. The objective of this publication is to make available, rather than evaluate, the data thus provided. Update Although the data contained in this Directory has been repeatedly checked, errors and omissions may still exist. All modifications and additions should be entered on the questionnaire included in the volume and returned to the address provided. This sample questionnaire is included to encourage users to com- plement and update the information provided, and to offer those organizations which are not included the chance to be considered for future editions. An evaluation form is also included to help improve future edi- tions of the Directory. Users are invited to complete this form and return it to the address provided. Sections of the Directory Profiles The profiles are arranged alphabetically by country and by the English name of the institution. A reference code assigned to each profile is listed above the English name. This code is used in the indexes to refer to the ins- titution, rather than the page number on which the profile is found. Each profile contains four types of information about the institution: a) identification and contact fields; b) the research activities of the institution in the area of children's rights, c) the library/documentation activities of the institution in the area of children's rights; d) information on the computerized databases of the institution. Identification fields Practical information on each institution is provided, including the official name and translation; acronym when it exists; address; telephone, telex, cable, telefax and E-mail numbers; contact name, as well as type of organization and scope of activities. Research activities fields Information is provided on the titles of on-going research projects and on research topics linked to the Articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as details on topics of special interest. Information/Documentation activities fields Details are provided on the size, languages and type of holdings of the collection, as well as subject areas linked to the Articles of the Convention of the Rights of the Child. Computerized databases fields When applicable, details on the computerized databases of the institution are listed, as well as information on access to the databases. Indexes The following indexes are included at the end of this publication to facilitate information retrieval: - an Index of Research Topics - an Index of On-Going Research Projects - an Index of Special Interest Topics - an Index of Documentation Topics - an Index of Library/Documentation Services 28

25 DIRECTORY OVERVIEW For example, institutions working on child abuse are identified by profile code in the Index of Research Topics under the heading Abuse and Neglect. Users can then refer back to the profiles to locate the institutions cor- responding to these codes. In addition, an alphabetical listing of the English names of the institutions included in the Directory is provi- ded, as well as a similar listing arranged by country in which the institution is located.

130 ANNEXES

131 The Convention on the Rights of the Child The Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations on November 20th 1989 and ente- red into force on September 2nd 1990 after being ratified by 20 States. As of March 15th 1995, 170 countries had either signed the Convention or become States Parties to it by ratification or accession. When ratified by a State, the Convention becomes binding law in it. The Convention seeks to balance the rights of the child with the rights and duties of parents or others who have responsibilities for child survival, development and protection, and gives the child the right to participate in deci- sions affecting both the present and the future. The fifty-four articles of the Convention describe the individual rights of any person under 18 to develop his or her full potential, free from hunger and want, neglect, exploita- tion or other abuses. The inherent strength of the new Convention lies in its flexibility, its capacity to accommodate the many diffe- rent approaches of nations in pursuit of a common goal. It has not evaded the sensitive issues, but has found means to adjust to the different cultural, religious and other values which address universal child needs in their own ways. Main provisions of the Convention Preamble The preamble reaffirms the fact that children because of their vulnerability, need special care and protection, and places special emphasis on the primary caring and protective responsibility of the family. It also reaffirms the need for legal and other protection of the child before and after birth, the importance of respect for the cultural values of the child's community, and the vital role of international co-operation in securing children's rights.
