In spite of a high level of social awareness in Europe, millions of its children are still subjected to violence. Children’s rights are violated on a daily basis in all European countries. Corporal punishment, sexual abuse, the exploitation of children and other similar violations are only now emerging into the public eye. While some progress has been made, it is far too slow and timid. Elaborately organised networks in human trafficking, online child pornography and sexual violence behind what should be the safe doors of the home still prevent Europe from fully guaranteeing children’s human rights.

The Council of Europe promotes and secures children’s human rights through developing standards and policies, monitoring countries’ compliance with norms, and launching awareness-raising actions. It also assists countries to develop comprehensive strategies addressing all forms of violence against children. This book references the Council of Europe’s work in this field and provides insights into the processes that have led to its many conventions, recommendations, decisions, programmes, reports and publications.
