Network of Organizations for Children of Serbia (MODS)

The state must react and protect victims of domestic violence!

English

The Network of Organizations for Children of Serbia and the Women against Violence Network have sent Recommendations for improving systemic measures in the field of prevention and protection against domestic violence to the Ministry of Labor, Employment, Social and Veteran Affairs, Ministry of Justice, and Ministry of the Interior. The immediate cause for the creation of these recommendations have been cases in which, during the month of July, two women and one child were murdered in Centers for Social Work.

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.
