The eleven Baltic Sea countries have all ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. They are thereby obliged to take measures to protect children from all forms of sexual exploitation, to prevent the sale of or traffic in children for sexual purposes and to promote physical and psychological recovery, social reintegration of abused and sexually exploited children. It was against this background that governments in the region sought new means to increase collaboration in the interest of preventing child abuse.


The Child Centre is the web support of a regional cooperation to raise the level of knowledge and to coordinate the activities targeting children at risk in the Baltic Sea Region. The five areas prioritised in the co-operation are: Child sexual abuse and exploitation, children in the street, children in institutions, young perpetrators of crimes and child trafficking and unaccompanied children. The Child Centre is a part of the Children's Unit within the secretariat of the Council of the Baltic Sea States that includes Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, the Russian Federation and Sweden.
