Abstract

• Children should be given an opportunity to express their views and wishes on decisions that affect their lives.
• The provision of victim protection and assistance services must take due account of the rights and needs of child witnesses of all forms of domestic or gender-based violence.
• In determining the custody and visitation rights of children, incidents of violence covered by the Istanbul Convention, ratified by Romania, will be taken into account.
• The exercise of any right of access or custody must not endanger the rights and safety of victims or children.
• A child victim or child witness of violence against women and domestic violence should be offered special protective measures, taking into account the best interests of the child.
