The presentation will highlight the difficulties encountered in international investigations in Europe without borders and beyond the European Union.  It will consider the benefits of networks that enable individuals and organisations to work together for the sharing of good practice and providing mutual support. It will also compare and contrast the legal requirements of cross border investigations and how they can put children at risk of harm.  The challenges of managing border controls will also be discussed.
