Protection of Children’s Rights and Hague Conventions

Protection of Children’s Rights in Cross Border Conflicts

 
On May 31, 2011 the President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev signed The Federal Law no.102-FZ on Russia’s joining the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction dated October 25, 1980.
 
The objective of 1980 Convention is to ensure immediate return of children wrongfully removed into one of the contracting states or wrongfully retained in any of these states. The Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference has worked out Guide to Good Practice under the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
 
Guide to Good Practice under the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 can be accessed (in Russian as well) on the official website of Hague Conference here:

 
A special Guide to Good Practice under the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction: Mediation, available in 23 languages, deals with the use of mediation for children’s protection in the cases of international child abduction.
 
The Russian translation has been prepared by The Center for Mediation and Law (Russia) and can be accessed on Hague Conference official website or on the Center’s website.
 
Department of the State Policy in the Sphere of Children’s Rights Protection of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation is assigned as the Central Authority for application of 1980 Convention by the Russian Government regulation no.1097 dated December 22, 2011. Protection of children’s rights in cross border conflicts is one of the key areas of the Department’s activity.
 
On May 5, 2014 the President of Russia signed Federal Law no. 126-FZ On the amendments to individual legislative acts of the Russian Federation in view of Russia’s joining Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
 
One of the tasks of the Federal Institute of Mediation (FIM), established under the aegis of the Ministry of Education and Science, is providing assistance to the Central Authority  to organize and conduct mediation in family disputes under 1980 and 1996 Conventions. For this purpose FIM has been assigned by the Central Authority as the Central Contact Point for international family mediation.
 
In order to provide high level professional assistance in mediation of international/cross border family disputes, including those under 1980 and 1996 Hague Conventions, the Institute has formed a team of international family mediators, who speak one or more foreign languages, and provide mediation services for resolving crossborder family disputes, including cases filed to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation as central authority.
