The ‘Terms of Reference’ (ToR) for this assignment called for the assessment of Kosovo’s Alternative Care System, with a particular focus on foster care. The ultimate purpose of the assessment is to contribute to strengthening the child protection system in Kosovo. In particular, findings aim to contribute to ensuring effective alternative care mechanisms are in place and that children, including those without parental care, are protected from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect. The system should also ensure that, when in the best interest of the child, any placement in alternative care should be in a safe and caring family environment.
