OBESSU is deeply concerned about the educational measures proposed by the Hungarian government. The Hungarian government announced its intention to deploy police forces to 500 schools across the country. According to the government, the measure aims to prevent violence against teachers and educational staff. The government also plans to expand the range of crimes and set the minimum age limit for punishment to 12 years.
The proposed measure contradicts international and European law and violates the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU and the European Convention on Human Rights, each of which sets out the right of children to protection from any form of violence, abuse, abuse and Discrimination and the declaration of everyone’s right to freedom of expression.
We urge international and European actors to monitor the actions taken by the Hungarian government and act accordingly.
We are in solidarity with Hungarian students!
