Research forms one of the core activities of the CRIDOC, as it basically defines the whole essence of our existence. Without research and monitoring, documentation would not make more sense. CRIDOC coordinates with various institutions and child focused NGOs in initiating research projects. We also put together all other research findings that have already been carried out in the past by other researchers, institutions, etc and make follow-up research projects wherever necessary.

As an organisation established with the aim of documenting child rights related issues, we implement projects that monitor various aspects of child rights situations in Malawi, such as the following:

bullet Children's Budget Monitoring;
bullet Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) Monitoring; and
bullet Children's Media monitoring

Key Activities under Research and Monitoring
bullet In 2008, CRIDOC was also among the six NGOs in Malawi that participated in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) Monitoring exercise, vis-à-vis data collection (research) and compilation of the Alternative/Shadow Report.
bullet On Media Monitoring, CRIDOC and Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) co-facilitated a consultative needs assessment workshop with media in June 2008 on children’s media monitoring with support from Plan Malawi
bullet CRIDOC voluntarily participated in the budget monitoring exercise earlier in the same year for primary schools within the Lilongwe Urban which was coordinated by LIDEN, in collaboration with the Civil Society Coalition for Quality Basic Education (CSCQBE) to which the CRIDOC is currently an institutional member
bullet The Centre also conducted a small survey in schools within Lilongwe District to established levels of youth participation in the “16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence 2007.”
