Mapping Child Protection Systems in the EU

Update 2023

Children’s rights exist to ensure the safety and wellbeing of every child. Improved child protection systems ensure that these rights are met. In recent years, the EU has taken significant steps to improve child protection systems. This mapping of child protection systems gives an overview of the state of such systems at national level and developments since 2015. It promotes the improvement of integrated child protection systems. It is an update of FRA’s mapping of child protection systems in 2015, based on data collected in 2023 in the 27 EU Member States. The country research was prepared by FRA’s research network, FRANET.

CSD contributed to the report by carrying out the research in Bulgaria and producing a country report as background material for the comparative analysis.

The full report and all national background studies are available on the FRA website here.
