It is the second time this year Women Judges’ Association’s regional conference titled „Women and children in migration” took place in Budapest, including Europe’s, Near East’s and North Africa’s region of Women Judges’ International Organisation. The two day-long consultation’s main theme were focusing on the issues of migration, gender, which particularly concerns women and children. The region’s two directors, hon. Anisa Djanji (UK) and hon. Mina Sougati (Morocco) were present.
Dr. Judit Gyarmathy told that National Office for the Judiciary project “Child-friendly justice” started in 2012 serves as a protection for the rights of the most vulnerable, enforcing and guaranteeing children’s rights on the highest level achievable. She accentuated the importance of recognising victims, treating them with sensitivity while preserving the requirement of impartiality the same time. Project “Victim and witness protection” aids this goal.
