New bill on Child Rights Georgia
The Constitution of Georgia, along with international treaties and conventions, recognizes and protects the rights of children. Child rights are also protected by the Child Protection Code, which was amended in 2020 to strengthen the legal framework for protecting children's rights.
New Amendments to the Child Protection Code
The amendments to the Child Protection Code that came into effect in 2020 introduced several changes to the law, including the establishment of the Office of the Children's Ombudsman, an independent body that is responsible for promoting and protecting children's rights in Georgia. The amendments also introduced measures to strengthen child protection services, including mandatory training for child protection workers and increased penalties for child abuse.
Enforcement of Child Rights Law in Georgia
Despite these legal protections, there have been cases where the state has failed to enforce child rights law in Georgia correctly. The state care agency responsible for protecting children has been criticized for poor management and a lack of resources, which has led to inadequate support for children in need of protection.
