UN Violence against Children Special Representative visits FRA

The UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children, Dr Najat Maalla M'jid, visited FRA on 27 November.

It was an opportunity to learn about each other’s ongoing activities and priorities. FRA gave an update of its survey-based research, on, for example, violence against women and on people in vulnerable situations like Roma, immigrants, LGBTIQ children from 15 or 16 years of age onwards.

She was also particularly interested in FRA’s work on guardianship and relocation of children deprived of parental care as well as the on-going mapping of child protection systems in all EU Member States.
