Compendium of action and good practices (2011-2015) of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the Network of Contact Parliamentarians involved in the Council of Europe ONE in FIVE Campaign to stop sexual violence against children

The issue of the protection of children’s rights remains a major challenge for all member States of the Council of Europe, despite great progress achieved since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child more than 25 years ago. Too many children continue to suffer from various forms of violence, including sexual abuse and exploitation.

The Council of Europe and its Parliamentary Assembly have been strongly committed to the protection of children for many years. Council of Europe standard setting bodies adopted the Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (Lanzarote Convention) in 2007, which as of December 2015 has been ratified by 39 member States. The Parliamentary Assembly has successfully promoted this Convention amongst national parliaments, and raised general awareness of the need to fight child sexual abuse.
