Get involved

Organisations working on children's rights can join forces with CRIN to:

  • Lobby the UN and others to ensure appointment processes are transparent, criteria are publicly available and demonstrate commitment to children's rights by signing petitions and public letters;
  • Identify the best candidates with appropriate experience and encouarge them to apply for positions. Each application process is different, so make sure you read up on the process in the job description. For instance, some global positions require or allow applications to attach letters of recommendation - this is where NGOs can directly support a candidate.
  • Alert CRIN of threats to open and transparent election processes, as well as to the independence of those already appointed, such as national ombudspersons. Email us at [email protected]

Appointment processes vary, so see specific actions for each key position identified.
