Recommendation CM/Rec(2018)5 of the Committee of Ministers to member States concerning children with imprisoned parents

Preserving family relations and respecting children's rights and interests

It is estimated that more than 2 million children in Europe have a parent in prison. This is a huge number which exceeds or equals the population of some of the European states. The majority of these children face emotional and material difficulties and many are subjected to psychological stress and stigmatisation, but they and their traumas remain largely hidden from the public attention.
