New video of the network of Cross-border Family Mediators coordinated by Missing Children Europe
The network of Cross-border Family Mediators coordinated by Missing Children Europe brings together 170+ family mediators worldwide who are trained in resolving cross-border family conflicts such as parental abduction. Missing Children Europe, Child Focus (Belgium), the University of Antwerp, Centrum IKO (the Netherlands), CFPE-Enfants Disparus (France) and the French Ministry of Justice have launched a research study to measure the wellbeing of children who were abducted by a parent and looked into the circumstances that influence this wellbeing. The research revealed that, no matter the circumstances or where they end up living, children find it important to remain in contact with both their parents.
