On 23 September, FRA will give a presentation at the 19th annual European Network for Ombudspersons for Children (ENOC) conference in Amsterdam.
The presentation will focus on two FRA research projects: ‘Child-friendly justice’ and ‘Violence against children with disabilities’. It will cover the extent, forms, causes and settings of violence towards children in particularly vulnerable situations as well as their treatment when they are involved in criminal proceedings as victims or witnesses of violence. The presentation will also address areas of improvement and promising practices including raising children’s awareness of their rights. The conference aims to tackle the issue of combating violence against children and the particular role ombudspersons for children play.
