CRIN is a creative think tank that produces new and dynamic perspectives on human rights issues, with a focus on children’s rights. CRIN is saying goodbye to business as usual and introducing the CRIN code. The code sets out their values, principles and vision for a rights-respecting world and how they intend to get there.

CRIN challenges the status quo because they believe the norms that dictate children’s place in society need radical change. Through research, artwork and their vision for the future, CRIN encourages people to think critically about the world and start their own conversations. Their goal is to have a world where children's human rights are recognised, respected and enforced, and where every rights violation has a remedy. Though they recognise this may be a long way it doesn’t stop them from paving the way. CRIN has set three overarching objectives that will guide their work in the coming years:

  • Change the narrative so that children become recognised as people with independent human rights 
  • Build a collective so that defending and promoting children’s rights becomes a shared responsibility
  • Seek justice so that when rights are violated, we fight for justice, accountability and redress
