Implementing ECHR judgments: New thematic factsheet on children’s rights

The Department for the Execution of Judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has published a new factsheet focusing on cases related to children.

The factsheet summarises measures reported by 29 member states to safeguard and protect children’s rights in response to 62 different judgments from the Strasbourg court.

It includes sections on protecting children from ill-treatment, detention, access to a court, children’s rights in family law matters and their protection from discrimination.

This is the sixth in a series of thematic factsheets on changes which have been brought about through the implementation of ECHR judgments.

Previous factsheets cover constitutional matters, effective investigations, freedom of religion, the environment and the independence and impartiality of judicial systems.

Factsheets are already available in several different languages and further translations are planned. (
