This is an english summary of the report “Hvorfor dømmes Norge i EMD? En statusrapport om barnevernsfeltet”, originally published in Norwegian in December 2020.
This report is an updated and revised English version of the report “Klima og menneskerettigheter”, published by the Norwegian Institution for Human Rights (NIM) in October 2020.
