On the content
The rights of minor victims of abuse in criminal proceedings are receiving increasing attention. They are laid down in international standards and received and further developed in national legal systems. In addition to these standards, the book highlights the provisions of a total of nine countries and four studies and suggests improvements in the canonical criminal procedures of the Roman Catholic Church. The new book is a unique collection of contributions written by leading authorities in the field of the rights and protection of underage victims of sexual abuse in the state sphere. From their studies emerge proposals by canon lawyers for improving the criminal procedure law of the Roman Catholic Church.
