Organization of the activity of the group for protection of the rights of the child in a neighbourhood

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The establishment of the Councils for the Protection of the Rights of the Child of municipal communities started in 2003. Their purpose is to submit (within the Council’s competence) proposals to municipal councils on the formation of the strategy and policy for the protection of children rights, the establishment of community priorities, as well as the elaboration and implementation of measures for the protection of children rights and prevention measures against the violation of children rights in a community (Official Gazette, 2002, No. 110-4866.). Although the establishment of the above group is one of the major steps in ensuring and strengthening the protection of children rights, it has exceptionally an advisory function; therefore, with a view to approximating the services to beneficiaries, child assistance groups are instrumental at the level of neighbourhoods for the assurance of complex assistance to children. Pursuant to the results of the interview of the members of the Working Groups for Protection of the Rights of the Child (hereinafter referred to as the GPRC), the present article analyzes practical operational aspects of the GPRC at a community level: the principles for the establishment of the above groups, the organization and coordination of activities. At the end of the article the model of the resolution of the violations of the main rights of the child in social risk families is presented.
