Our research resources include the following:

CRAN – The Child Rights Academic Network

CRAN is a broad network of academics, advocates, children’s rights, and legal experts from across Canada, the U.S., and the U.K. who teach, research and advocate for children’s rights. The Landon Pearson  Centre established CRAN in 2008, with support from the Muttart Foundation and the Centre For Initiatives on Children, Youth, and Community. The Muttart Foundation continues its generous funding of this initiative.

Shaking the Movers Workshops

Shaking the Movers” is an annual youth-driven and youth-led workshop series held in different regions of the country in both English and French.  The workshops enable children and youth to have a safe space to consider aspects of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in the context of their lived experiences.  Shaking the Movers workshops also provide children and youth with a unique opportunity to exercise their right to engage in critical civil and political processes with the assurance that their voices will be listened to and heard.
