Research output: Other contributionProfessional

Child protection legislation and policy has been developing continually, due to several influences. Dutch child protection policy is determined by national as well as international laws. The UNCRC has played a key part in the legislation and policy on child protection since 1995. Besides the UNCRC, article three and eight of the ECHR are relevant to child protection (Memorie van Toelichting Jeugdwet, 2013, chapter 9). Since 2015, the Youth Act has formed the legal and policy framework of the Dutch youth care system, which covers the child protection system.
