Convention on the Rights of the Child

Promote prevention and protection of children from violence

English

Belgrade, November 21, 2016 – On the day marking the Universal Children's Day, Network of Organizations for Children of Serbia (MODS) is calling attention to the fact that mechanisms for the protection of children in Serbia are not fully effective. Neglect, misuse, abuse, and violence threaten physical, psychological and sexual integrity of the child, which leads to a violation of one of the basic human right that has been raised to the level of principle in the Convention on the Rights of the Child - the right to life, survival and development.
