European Network of Masters in Children's Rights

The European Network of Masters in Children's Rights brings together universities and other organizations involved in the promotion of the Rights of the Child, through the training of professionals working in the field of childhood. By November 2007, 24 universities and research institutes have joined the network and it is continuously growing. The network brings together academics, researchers, NGOs, public agencies and students.  

The Network of Masters in Children's Rights was founded in September 2004 in Berlin but the initiative to create ENMCR came from the regional office for Latin America and the Caribbean of Save the Children Sweden (SCS) and individuals in Europe devoted to the promotion and realisation of children's rights. In order to promote an international exchange also beyond European borders, ENMCR also cooperates with the Latin American Network of Master study programms in Children’s Rights ( and aims at cooperating in the future also with similar networks and institutions on other continents.
