The project coordinated by the Regional Office of UNICEF CEE/CIS, covers Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania and Turkey.
The aim of the project is to build the capacity of civil society partners for monitoring child rights abuses with a special focus on cases of violence against children. The main goal is to promote the partnership between NGOs and governmental decision makers in order to strengthen public services to identify, monitor and address cases of violence against children.
Project activities in order to achieve this main goal are being implemented under 3 main components:
1. Improved knowledge on gaps in the responsiveness of professionals in the system of public services to identify and act upon cases of violence against children
2. Improved national capacity for independent monitoring by national civil society networks and formal independent monitoring mechanisms (such as Ombudspersons or child rights observatories) at national and local levels, to raise awareness and articulate inputs to the policy dialogue about violence against children
3. Improved capacity for policy dialogue between civil society actors and State actors (through existing institutionalized mechanisms for policy dialogue) on the effectiveness of policies and programmes to address violence against children
