Fighting sexual violence against children: coordination is needed between state, regional and local bodies

''At the grassroots level, services to fight sexual violence against children can be better tailored to meet citizens’ needs,'' said Clemens Lammerskitten, Vice-President of the Congress, speaking in the Bundestag, the national Parliament of Germany. He participated in a meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly’s Network of Contact Parliamentarians to stop sexual violence against children. Discussions focused on national strategies and mechanisms to protect children and to improve close co-operation between the different stakeholders.
