Our history
ACCESSING JUSTICE FOR VIOLATIONS OF CHILDREN’S RIGHTS IN CARE INSTITUTIONS

The occurrence of abuse and neglect of children in care institutions in Eastern and Southeastern Europe and the Caucasus has been known to governments for decades, yet few survivors ever secure redress. The institutional abuse of children takes many forms, including sexual abuse of children in residential care and community-based settings, physical or emotional abuse, and harms suffered from living in the ‘dehumanising institutional environment’ of residential care.
