>Dear Friends,
>
>We would like to introduce you to our new and on going database
>entitled 'Press and Childrenís Rights in Central America', which is
>available on-line on Casa Alianza's web site at
>http://www.casa-alianza.org/ES/camedia/busqueda.phtml
>
>This exciting initiative offers you the opportunity to access
>information from the written press published in Guatemala, Honduras,
>El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama, plus analysis of
>trends based on this information.
>
>In the database we have processed all news articles, related to
>children, published in the chosen papers. Through the database you
>will have access to an analytical resume of each story, along with
>key descriptors and related articles of the United Nations Convention
>on the Rights of the Child. Copies of the written texts are held in the
>Regional Office of Casa Alianza in San Jose, Costa Rica.
>
>Both the resumes and the complete texts are mostly available in
>Spanish. The analysis of the material is carried out using
>chronological and thematic criteria.
>
>Using this information the user will be able:
>
>1. To understand the general situation and specific cases of
>violations of Children's Rights as published in the written press
>
>2. To construct chronological analyses that permit the establishment
>of trends on the up to date situation within these countries.
>
>3. To monitor how the press treats children's issues and understand
>the vision that is being constructed through the press in Central
>America
>
>We hope this project will be a useful instrument for the promoters
>and defenders of children's rights and will allow you to identify
>criteria in order to influence the way in which the media deals with
>these issues.
>
>At the moment more than 11,000 press cuttings have been
>processed on line, plus analysis, covering a period from September
>1997 to the end of 1999.
>
>This initiative originated through co-operation between Casa Alianza
>in Central America and Mexico, the Health Policies Research
>Program of the Public Health School of the University of Costa Rica
>and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
>
>From June 1999 this effort has been maintained thanks to the
>support and confidence of the Spanish ěHeres Foundationî with
>collaboration from the ěOlof Palme Foundationî in El Salvador and
>ěCasa Esperanzaî in Panama.
