Violence against children with disabilities: legislation, policies and programmes in the EU

Report
Children with disabilities face significant barriers to enjoying their fundamental rights. They are often excluded from society, sometimes living in facilities far from their families. They are also denied access to basic services, such as health care and education, and endure stigma and discrimination, as well as sexual, physical and psychological violence. FRA scrutinised the important but underreported issue of violence against children with disabilities, carrying out desk research and conducting interviews with knowledgeable stakeholders. This report presents the results of that research.

Victims of crime in the EU: the extent and nature of support for victims

It focuses not on abstract fundamental rights standards but on the final practical results.
