"The Rights of the Child – between the Interests of the Parents and the Obligations of the State" was the theme of this annual conference of the ombudspersons for children network of south-east Europe (CRONSEE), held on 28 May 2015 in Zagreb. It was organised by Croatian ombudsperson for children, Ivana Milas Klarić and under the auspices of the City Assembly of the City of Zagreb. The representatives of ombudspersons for children from the countries of south-east Europe and professionals from Croatia discussed how to realise the rights of the child and his/her best interest when the interests of parents appear to be in conflict with the child's interests and the obligations of the government to protect the child's well-being.
Training for court professionals was organised by the Ministry of Justice and UNICEF, and held in Zagreb, from 21 to 23 September 2015. The primary aim of this training was to provide additional knowledge and skills in working with children within the justice system which has increasingly been striving towards sensitising and not only better understanding the rights of the child, but also towards adjusting to them.
The training was conducted by experienced professionals working with children, Lana Peto Kujundžić, the County Court judge, Prof. ScD Gordana Buljan Flander, director of the Child Protection Centre of Zagreb and Renata Ćorić Špoljar, clinical psychologist of the Child Protection Centre of Zagreb. Mirta Kuharić, the representative of the Ministry of Justice and Mirjana Bijelić, the representative of UNICEF also attended the training.
