Safeguarding in Central and Eastern Europe

Our Common Mission of Safeguarding God’s Children – An international conference for Church leaders and professionals working in the field of child and youth protection in nearly 20 countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

It is another of the continental or regional conferences organized by the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors.

The conference is dedicated to issues related to the Church’s response to the crisis of the sexual abuse of minors. It will also be an attempt to look at a certain post-Communist mentality and its impact on the approach to the issue of the sexual abuse of minors by members of the Catholic clergy.

To be discussed during the conference are topics related to prevention, intervention (reporting abuse and implementating existing procedures described in the Motu Proprio Vos estis lux mundi) and proven best practices already adopted and in use in other parts of the Church, and what still needs to be implemented to ensure the maximum protection to minors.

Another aim of the conference is the exchange of experiences and the networking of people involved in the field of the protection of minors to establish closer collaboration.
