The vision of "Hope for Children" UNCRC Policy Center is to contribute to the protection and promotion of the rights of the child and to support the active participation of children and youth in society. While ''Hope For Children'' UNCRC Policy Center is aiming to advocate and to protect children’s rights, at the same time, is working for the rights of the child by leading projects of research and policy making.
Within the framework of research and policy making, a new and exciting initiative is established: the Chair of UNCRC Policy Center. The Chair will, in all of its activities, nurture cooperation and collaborative action between organizations around the world. This is in the hope and expectation that working together will help us to uphold the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) more effectively. With joint voices we can have a larger influence on official international policy and with collective action from different corners of the globe we can practically impact positively children’s lives. Without an exaggeration, our aim is to monitor and advocate for 2.2 billion children (according to UNICEF) around the world.
That is why it is very important to establish a Chair in each CRC member state, either in a university of academic reputation or research center that will allow for bigger protection, better support and a more successful outcome. Initially, by expanding on each CRC member state and later on the rest of the world, we aim to change behaviors of families and communities and improve the quality of life for each child. The Chair will act as an agent of knowledge on children’s rights within the academic community through policy and practice, by teaching, conducting research and providing services to the community. This is an approach that will help protect and strengthen the environment around children and in their community.
