Mapping of national child protection systems in the EU

Research on national child protection systems in the 28 European Union (EU) Member States. It seeks to understand how national child protection systems work and to identify common challenges and promising practices. FRA will examine the scope and key components of national child protection systems across the EU. The focus will be on the systems’ laws, structures, actors and how the systems function, as well as human and financial resources and the existing accountability mechanisms. The research will explore how these systems operate and how they address the specific needs of particular groups of children, examining also national and transnational coordination and interagency cooperation.
