Creating an enabling environment
Barnahus is not an island isolated from the context in which it is established. It is, and should be, associated to the legal, socio-economic and cultural context that it operates in.
The European Barnahus Network and the Competence Centre support countries to work towards an enabling environment that ensures the smooth running of Barnahus that are fully integrated in, and contribute to, child-friendly national justice and child protection systems.
Drawing on our studies, resources and the experience of Barnahus from across Europe, we together look at factors that can contribute to an enabling environment for Barnahus in your country.
Together we explore and develop strategies to ensure that Barnahus plays an integral in ensuring child-friendly justice and child protection:
- Aware and supportive societies
- Law and Policy
- National procedures for criminal investigation, the judicial process, child protection and interagency collaboration
- Sustainable Resources
- Interagency commitment
