The 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child guides every aspect of the work of the Centre and of UNICEF (the United Nations Children’s Fund) as a whole. The Centre has been the research engine for UNICEF’s shift to a rights-based approach over the last decade, measuring the reality for children against the standards required by the Convention. In 2000, as in previous years, the Centre worked in partnership with UNICEF offices and National Committees, with Governments, non-governmental organizations, universities, researchers and others to share expertise, ideas and experience. And, as always, it maintained its intellectual independence to focus on cutting-edge, action-oriented research.
