The Topic of protecting children against violence is very actual all over the world. Violence is found in schools, families, among young people in communities and has different forms like cyber-bullying, online sexual exploitation or physical/psychological violence, verbal abuse etc. About the importance of this topic talks also a huge range of surveys, which verify that children have experiences with all types of violence. Risks of violence increase during emergencies that weaken the abilities of families and communities to protect children. Girls, in particular, face serious risks of gender-based violence during emergencies.

Because of these reasons non-profitable organization called Forum of social justice and National Coordination Centre for Resolving the Issues of Violence against Children decided to organise a Conference Support of Multidisciplinary coordination of entities – protecting children against violence, which focuses on close and family relationships in children´s life.

One incorrectly made decision in lifes of children can affect them in different ways. Because of the 100th anniversary since the Czechoslovakia was found, it is a very good chance to make an overview how the protecting of children was organized in the past, is organize actually and could be organize in the future. These three previews offer an image how the system of protecting children, who are exposed against violence, is changing.
