Integrated Child Protection Systems in the EU

The EU Commission is working on an initiative that aims to support the development and strengthening of integrated child protection systems in the EU.

Focused on children’s needs, the initiative aims to encourage all relevant authorities and services to work together in a holistic way, from preventing abuse of and violence towards children, to protecting them. It is also intended to present how to better use existing EU tools (laws, policies, funding) to make child protection systems more integrated and robust, by avoiding silos.

As part of the initiative, they ran a public "Have your say" consultation to which ESCAP provided feedback.
