Language: English; Hungarian
Country: Hungary
Annotation: A national survey conducted by the prosecution service of Hungary analyzes investigations of crimes against children to determine the extent of child abuse.
Abstract: The survey reflected the reinterpretation, in Hungary's legal literature beginning in the early 1980's, of the role of the family. Citing articles from the United States and Great Britain, the articles noted that although the family was the basic unit of society, it might not only protect and support its members. Instead, it can be harmful as well. Children are particularly vulnerable. Experts at child protection units are more critical nowadays about families that do not function properly. The author is the head of the Child and Juvenile Protection Department in the Attorney General's Office in Hungary. Tables (Publisher summary modified)
