- Measuring Maturity - Understanding children's 'evolving capacities' [English]
Children face a confusing array of minimum ages at which they are deemed capable of making decisions for themselves – some of them potentially life-changing. The age at which children can have a say in their medical treatment, for instance, or get married or vote, or choose or reject a religious belief or faith, varies significantly across and even within cultures. The legal minimum age may or may not reflect what children themselves feel they are capable of.

- Children's Right to the City
In 2008, for the first time in history, more than half the world’s population will be living in towns or cities. This edition of the CRIN Review explores the impact of urbanisation, city size, and growth on children’s rights.
- A Generation On: Enforcing children's rights
Published to coincide with the 18th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, this edition reflects on the international child rights climate, drawing together analysis of advances and obstacles in implementing child rights in recent years.

- Child Rights and Emergencies
This edition of CRIN’s newsletter aims to reflect on some of the challenges of working within a child rights framework in emergency situations. It draws together some lessons learned, creative ways of working, as well as practical tools and case studies for overcoming these challenges and helping children to better prepare for and recover from emergencies.
- CRIN Newsletter 19: Children and Violence
This issue focuses coincides with the near completion of the UN Study on Violence Against Children, and its presentation to the UN General Assembly. To support all those involved in the UN Study and committed to ending violence against children in general, CRIN developed a thematic website to serve as a shared platform for civil society to exert an influence on the Study. This newsletter aims to complement that website by looking at some of the current debates on violence against children while also offering some practical tools for those working with children and for those engaged in campaigning and advocacy.
- CRIN Newsletter 18: Rights Based Programming with Children: an introduction
The issues surrounding human rights based approaches are issues that concern and affect the entire development and relief community. More and more organisations are looking with interest in that direction. But what is it and what does it mean for organisations to adopt rights based approaches to programming?
- CRIN Newsletter 17: Child Rights and the Private Sector
This edition looks at issues such as corporate social responsibility and the role of the private sector in upholding human rights, and how the attitude to the private sector, which is generally quite critical, can also be constructive - setting out positive ways in which businesses could play a much stronger role in defending children's rights.
- CRIN Newsletter 15: Mainstreaming Child Rights
This edition of the newsletter considers how to take forward the 'mainstreaming' of child rights and illustrates this process through a selection of case studies.
- CRIN Newsletter 14: Special Session on Children

- CRIN Newsletter 13: Children and Macroeconomics

The focus on education reflects the increased interest and debate going on as we approach the 10-year review of the Education for All initiative. This activity will culminate in the World Education Forum to be held in Dakar, Senegal from 26-28 April.
