Registration and monitoring of child maltreatment cases in the justice system

A qualitative study of policy and systems abroad (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The aim of this project was to study registration and monitoring systems for child maltreatment cases abroad, in the first place within the justice system, but also within the social sector (child protection, welfare). The study was exploratory in nature.

The systems of thirteen countries were studied: Belgium (Flanders region), Canada, Denmark, Germany, England, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Norway, United States, Sweden and Switzerland. This was done on the basis of a literature study (published literature in scientific journals, grey literature, including policy documents, legal texts, etc.) and an online survey, plotted in our international network.
