The project

The involvement of civil society in preventing and combating child sexual exploitation and abuse is crucial. The Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (Lanzarote Convention) explicitly recognises the role of civil society subjects in this regard, as well as the contribution of civil society to its effective implementation. 

Cooperation with non-governmental organisations is essential to support, implement and monitor the Lanzarote Convention at the local, national and international levels. In addition, given the expertise and practical experience of civil society subjects, their participation in the Lanzarote Committee is a key advantage of the Lanzarote Convention monitoring mechanism and requires further development. 

The workshop will be held on 28 October 2021 in an online format, and will benefit from the participation of Dr. George Nikolaidis, International Expert of the Council of Europe, and former Lanzarote Committee Chairperson,

The workshop will aim to:

  • introduce the participants to the Lanzarote Convention and the Council of Europe Strategy on the Rights of the Child, reinforcing their capabilities to monitor and review processes along with other relevant stakeholders;
  • discuss challenges and steps taken forward observed by NGOs in the implementation of the Lanzarote Convention in Ukraine;
  • allow Civil Society Organisations from different regions of Ukraine to observe and discuss best practices of other NGOs in the country;
  • present Counil of Europe resources and means available to Civil Society Organisations for promoting the Convention and the European Day on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse.
