On 21 December 2010, UN Member States will gather at the UN General Assembly in New York to elect nine people to the most important children's rights organisation in the world: the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.Those selected will replace outgoing members of the 18-strong Committee whose terms expire on 28 February 2011.

CRIN and the NGO Group have joined forces to interview candidates standing for election to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in December 2010. We are asking them about their experience in children's rights, what they think they can contribute to the Committee, what they think about key issues, their vision for the Committee and how they see NGOs' role
