One in Five


Handbook for parliamentarians


The handbook for parliamentarians is a practical tool to help parliamentarians better understand and promote the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (Lanzarote Convention).


The Lanzarote Convention contains all the measures needed to prevent sexual violence, to protect children and to prosecute the abusers. The convention is open to the 47 member states of the Council of Europe as well as to non-member states.


The handbook highlights the sensitive issues which need to be tackled through national legislation.
