The Needs of Endangered Children
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: September 3, 2018, 19:00 – 21:00
Discussion focused on the current status of endangered children in the Czech Republic in the context of ongoing changes in social and family policy. It will also explore the fulfilment of the Czech Republic’s international legal commitments as regards the protection of human rights. The invited guests include experts committed to high standards and dignified conditions in care for endangered children, including subsequent support during adolescence and early adulthood.
The debate will outline the situation at present, including the recommendations that the Czech Republic regularly receives in this area from international human rights organisations (Council of Europe, United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, European Court of Human Rights). Another theme will be the introduction of functioning, high-quality services that not only help individual children but are also part of systematic changes that should contribute to the protection of endangered children and their families in the future.
Speakers: Marie Oktábcová (Nadace J&T), Jana Luhanová (Routa), Alexandra Tichánková (Děti patří domů), Klára Chábová (Mimo domov), Tereza Jandová (Dětský domov Korkyně), Radek Laci (Vteřina poté) a Terezie Pemová (NIDAR). Chaired by Tibor A. Brečka.
Debate organised by the National Institute for Children and the Family, the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and the Václav Havel Library in connection with the 22nd world congress of ISPCAN (the International Society for Prevention Child Abuse and Neglect).
