New publication: Guidelines for safeguarding and empowering children

In collaboration with experts from four member organisations, WAVE developed a comprehensive child safeguarding framework that can be adapted to different legal contexts. WAVE members involved in the project are the Autonomous Women’s House Zagreb (AWHZ) from Croatia, NANE Women’s Rights Association (Women For Women Together Against Violence) from Hungary, the Central Information Office of Autonomous Women’s Shelters (ZIF) from Germany, and the Women’s Rights Foundation (WRF) from Malta.

The guidelines delve into the legislative context by addressing key international norms for the rights, protection and safeguarding of children, explain the foundations and purpose of the child safeguarding guidelines, and highlight safeguarding areas, factors and procedures for protection.
