Dear colleagues,

This thematic newsletter from the Child Protection Hub marks the International Women's Day today. Below you will find a selection of resources we prepared on specific risks and challenges that refugee women and girls face due to the gender perceptions. 
Please scroll down to read about upcoming webinars and vacancies, and remember, there is always much more resources on the website.

Our next webinar is just in a few hours today, at 4pm CET. We will talk about rights of young people who are suspected or accused of crimes in the EU. We will look at the rights to interpretation and translation, the right to information, and the right to access to a lawyer and communications with third parties and consular authorities. We will also present a handbook for legal practitioners.

Please help us spread the word by sharing this information with your colleagues and join us today at 4pm CET at this link.

Best wishes,
Child Protection Hub team.
