Welcome to Integrating a Child Rights Approach in Accountability Work
Integrating a Child Rights Approach in Accountability Work is a self-paced, online, e-learning course. It was developed by Justice Rapid Response and Save the Children with financial support from the European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (ECHO). This course was created as part of the induction programme for justice experts who are members or selected to become members of the JRR roster. 
The various scenarios in this course are fictional, although they are based on real deployments and work done by JRR experts. The course follows the work of JRR experts and focuses on the interconnection of child rights and justice processes for international crimes and international human rights.
