Child sexual abuse is a problem that societies face globally and is
the most severe violation of children's rights and dignity. Also, a growing number of victims of sexual violence are children and the recorded
age of victims is continuously decreasing. The consequences are
terrifying both for the physical and mental health of the child, as well
as for the overall development of the child as a person and the quality
of life as an adult. Children abuse is a phenomenon influenced by many
factors. Multiple protection and protection at different levels is needed.
The system of protective interventions should cover different levels of
prevention, recognition and detection of victims, dealing with victims
and perpetrators of sexual abuse. The Republic of Macedonia has developed legislation and has adopted the European legislation regarding
this issue and has developed a system of social protection for children
victims of sexual abuse. However, despite the declarative setting of the
protection of children against sexual abuse, there are many inconsistences.
Taking into consideration the knowledge about the prevalence of
sexual abuse of children, the subject of this work is precisely the fore
mentioned form of violence. The aim is to obtain a complete picture of the definition of this problem, the situation, as well as the establishment
of the system of legal and social protection in relation to sexual abuse
of children.
