Project Description
During the first Closing a Protection Gap project, the Core Standards for Guardians of Separated Children were developed. The objective of this follow-up project is to work with the Core Standards in practice and work towards policy and legislative initiatives at national and European level to provide the strongly needed framework for responsibilities of guardianship systems in order for all separated children in Europe to get the protection they are entitled to. Existing challenges will be analysed with input from workshops with separated children and guardians, and national and European policy and legislative changes will be advocated during expert meetings and consultations with for example Members of the European Parliament.
