CENIN

Children’s platform

CEMIN

CEMIN is an interdisciplinary organization, a social initiative, which offers interpretive and orientative criteria from an independent viewpoint of what constitutes the best interests of children and teenagers in the different professional scenarios and welfare conditions: social, judicial, educational, training and health.

It is formed by professionals from the different areas of action relating to the family (judges, lawyers, psychologists, social workers, etc.), who provide CEMIN with their knowledge and dedication to watch out for and work in the interests of CHILDREN and teenagers.

We work from CEMIN, at both national and international level, on interesting projects regarding prevention and education.

CEMIN is part of the Platform of Infancy (POI), commonly known as Children’s platform. The POI is an alliance of non-profit organizations (NGOs , plural, supportive, democratic and independent) from a political and religious viewpoint that works to defend the human rights of people under the age of eighteen in Spain.

The Children’s platform works within the context of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This Convention was approved by the United Nations General Assembly on 20 November 1989 to protect the rights of every human under the age of eighteen, in the belief that they should not be treated as objects of charity and should have legal rights, with needs and specific interests.

The Children’s Platform is currently formed by 53 social organisations that work together in Spain to protect, promote and defend the rights of children and teenagers in line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
