Combating Violence Against Children in Ukraine
The project supports Ukraine in strengthening its response to child sexual exploitation, including in the digital environment, promoting child-friendly practices with focus on ensuring the rights of child victims and witnesses in proceedings and promoting the rights of the child in the digital environment.
National Police of Ukraine participated in an online training on "Investigative Interviewing of Children”, based on the Methodological Guidelines and Investigative Interview Protocol of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development prepared jointly with the Council of Europe Experts. The Guidelines improve interviewing proceedings involving minors in accordance with the provisions of the Lanzarote Convention and other European standards on child-friendly justice and will be further be used by professionals with the support of the National Police.
In October, the project launched the HELP course "Family Law and Human Rights" in cooperation with the Coordination Center for Free Legal Aid and the National Bar Association of Ukraine.
