Centre for Advanced Research on Integrity, Rights and Inclusion of the Child (CIRIC) brings together research and development initiatives focused on children and families in the child welfare system, initiating collaboration between scholars from different disciplines with policy planners and practitioners in the field, both nationally and internationally.

The goal is to improve the quality of services that children and families receive through a research-focus on the rights of the child and professional practice.

CIRIC is originally a collaborative effort between Tallinn University and Oslo Metropolitan University.
