This study explores the representation and human rights situation of Romani children in institutional care in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Romania and Slovakia. It follows a report issued by the European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) in 2007 entitled, Dis-Interest of the Child: Romani Children in the Hungarian Child Protection System, which analysed the situation of Romani children in State child protection institutions in Hungary.
United Nation Children's Fund report is about children in Eastern Europe and Central Asia who are deprived of parental care. Despite recent reforms, which have led to an increase in the number of children being placed in alternative families – for example with foster parents, guardians or adoptive parents – the majority of these children are still living in institutions.
The Resource Center created by National Centre for Child Abuse Prevention http://amicel.cnpac.org.md/index.php?lang=ro addresses violence against children and features legal documents, laws, international documents, researches and media reports. In addition, the web site offers the opportunity to discuss within a forum and to ask CN PAC experts online questions. Access to information is ensured not only by the complexity of resources, but also by the fact that the subjects are provided to the audience in the Romanian and Russian languages.
