Violation by guardians against child rights

Project: Violation by guardians against child rights
Location: Beijing, China
Target group: Children victims of abuse

BCLARC runs two legal consultation hotlines offering free legal advice to children across China, represents children and families in court and coordinates a network of more than 8 000 volunteer lawyers representing children free of charge. Legal and policy research is regularly published to raise awareness and impact legislators. The target group for the project is children who have been abused by their parents or caregivers, an area which is increasingly addressed in China, for example illustrated by recent policies on removing children from abusive families. 10 children will be supported with direct legal support and a research report on gaps and challenges for implementing the new policies is expected to contribute to improved protection systems for children in China in the long-term.
