The Permanent Bureau is pleased to announce that the Practical Handbook on the Operation of the 1996 Hague Child Protection Convention is now available in all official languages of the European Union. The European Commission (DG Justice) generously provided translations into the official languages of the European Union, with the exception of English, French and Spanish, which had already been produced by the HCCH.
The Practical Handbook also already existed in Russian; thus this publication is now available in 24 languages.
