CRC database

The CRC database is a contents management database of documents and information related to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It has been designed to process relevant materials related to the Convention of the Rights of the Child - including the texts of international instruments, the background texts, the National reports, the official documents from the Committee on the Rights of the Child, as well as case studies, lessons learned and other resources.

The CRC database is based on a thematic approach to the Convention on the Rights of the Child and classifies the documents using the clusters identified by the Committee on the Rights of the Child in its Guidelines for Initial Reports and Periodic Reports.

The powerful retrieval system allows to select a path in the database where to search a keyword, as well as to query the whole archive.

All sections are database-driven and can be dynamically linked each other. By searching a theme, a country, an article number etc. materials related to that search string will be retrieved across the various sections.
