FRA, 16 October 2015, 80 pages

On occasion of the 9th EU Anti-Trafficking Day, on the 18th of October 2015, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), in close cooperation with the European Commission, publishes the report: Guardianship systems for children deprived of parental care in the European Union.

This report explores the key features of guardianship systems across all EU Member States that have been established to meet the needs of children without parental care. It includes those at risk of becoming victims of human trafficking or other forms of violence and exploitation.

This comparative report complements the handbook on guardianship for children deprived of parental care. It will help decision makers to take measures to promote the effective protection of all children, in line with the EU’s anti-trafficking Directive and Strategy.
