High-level seminar on the rights of child victims of crime and ECtHR case law
14 giugno 2022

Safeguarding the rights of child victims of crime: the case law of the European Court of Human Rights as inspiration and call to action

This high-level seminar offers a forum for introducing, exploring and discussing the case law of the European Court of Human Rights concerning the rights of child victims of crime, with the participation of President Robert Spano of the European Court of Human Rights and Bragi Guđbrandsson, Founder of Barnahus in Iceland and Member of the Committee on the Rights of the Child, as well as Najat Maalla M’jid, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Violence Against Children.  

The ECtHR jurisprudence underlines the importance of ensuring criminal investigations and proceedings involving child victims of crime are carried out with due respect for the rights and needs of the child. It represents an inspiration and a call to action for state and civil society actors in the fields of child protection, law enforcement and the judiciary throughout Europe.

Defence for Children International – Italy and the Italian Ministry of Justice, together with the E-PROTECT consortium, are organising this high-level seminar as the third and final international event in the context of the EU co-funded project E-PROTECT II.

The event will be held in English and organised on a zoom platform with simultaneous translation in the languages of the project partners (Bulgarian, Greek, Italian and Romanian).
