The Voice of the Child

A Project launched and monitored by Missing Children Europe

September 2017-September 2019


In Europe, a child is reported missing every 2 minutes.

23% of these disappearances are the consequence of a conflict between his parents. These children are between a week and 17 years of age.

During the process of resolving an international separation and/or abduction, our research has told us that very often children are not involved in the decisions that are made related to their care. Children who have been abducted by a parent often have no or little say in where they will be placed once they have been found.  Other times children complain about a lack of understanding in terms of what is expected from them and about feeling confused and burdened with responsibility. Children who weren’t heard felt that they were not being taken seriously, or even felt invisible. Additionally, in most cases children were barely or not at all informed in cases where they were made to return to the left behind parent. Often, the abrupt return is associated with negative feelings of ambivalence, anger and intrusiveness.

The project ‘Voice of the Child’ finally aims at giving children a voice in court cases affecting them(*).
We want children to be involved in decisions about their care in a way that is appropriate for them and does not leave any long-term negative impact. With the right tools and training, children who wish to be heard whether during a court case or a mediation can be supported to do so in a way that will be positive for their wellbeing, and as a result of their input decisions can be taken that will serve their best interests.

In September 2018, the VOICE project entered its second and last working year. The results of both the psychological and legal research were almost finalized and formed the basis of a first training for 40 legal professionals (Antwerp, 6-7 December 2018).

The training itself was evaluated as educational, very interactive, a good exchange of ideas, inspirational and enriching. Furthermore, participants particularly appreciated the personal testimony of an abducted child, the presentation of a new model to incorporate the voice of the child and the input from experienced participants.

The evaluation of this first training will now be used to develop a second training for legal professionals in Genoa (14-15 March 2019) and 2 training sessions for cross-border family mediators.

Altogether 70 mediators and 80 legal professionals will benefit from these trainings. On top of that, a conference will be organized for 140 professionals of children care, politicians etc.

The money raised through our golf events 2018 & 2019 will go towards co-funding this vital project. 


(*) The figures published in 2017 following the Hague Convention 1980 show that 1161 families were impacted in 2015.
