The Children’s Rights Knowledge Centre (in Dutch abbreviated as KeKi) aims to gather, make available, disseminate and stimulate scientific knowledge on children’s rights. KeKi’s mission is translated into concrete objectives based on the following four principles: Scientific, as KeKi grounds its activities in the results of scientific research. Interdisciplinary as KeKi maintains an interdisciplinary perspective in its approach of children’s rights. This does neither exclude the realization of unidisciplinary studies or trainings, nor does it hinder future steps being taken towards a transdisciplinary approach. Critical-emancipatory as KeKi adopts a critical-emancipatory approach towards children’s rights. This implies that the basic principles of the concept of children’s rights are being examined and its possibilities and limitations explored (critical). Children’s rights are also seen as a potential lever to change the social relations in our society towards more human dignity (emancipatory).Balance between involvement and distance as KeKi allows for being involved while maintaining room for critical reflection.
