Child Rights International Network

Resource type:

CRIN Guides and Toolkits

PDF document

The purpose of this guide is to help readers understand the ‘mechanisms’ working on child rights, such as different parts of the United Nations, or regional bodies like the African Union.

This is the PDF version of the online mechanisms guide we have developed here - part of a broader legal guide that also includes a database on international, regional and national laws relating to child rights. Visit the database

The guide is not exhaustive, or perfect, and will be updated as new developments unravel, and changes are made to existing mechanisms.

If you notice any inaccuracies, or have any other comments, we would like to hear from you. Please email:

This guide includes links, so if you have access to the internet you can click on certain words or phrases which will take you to either the CRIN website, or other websites, where you can find out more.

Please note: Some of the links to the website for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) may not work. This is because the OHCHR website has changed, and the web addresses have not been updated. We are waiting for the new address to be finalised before updating this guide.
