Enhancing child’s right for the participation in child protection assessment (COMPENCA)

This project focus on the child´s right to participate in child protection assessment and decision-making.

COMPENCA promotes future and current child protection workers’ access to knowledge, and the continued effort to professionalise the workforce and their duty to enforce the rights of the child. Studies indicate that assessment practices in Estonia and Norway are done for the child rather than with the child, which is in breach of the Convention on the Rights of the Child Art. 12.2, which stipulates that children are legally entitled to be heard during child protection casework.
