National Experiences in Applying Civil Protection Measures : The Case of Spain

15-03-2012

In this document, we describe the activity of Fundación ANAR (Ayuda a Niños y Adolescentes en Riesgo, or Help for Children and Adolescents at Risk) and, in particular, the ANAR Help lines, which were launched in 1994. We then reflect how Spanish law regulates the protection order for victims of crime and, finally, we provide a number of contributions that, in our experience in child protection, we believe important to consider in the study and drafting of recent legislative proposals from the European Commission for strengthening the rights of victims of crime in the European Union.
