Location no. 4 – Helsinki 15.09.2014
In Helsinki, attorney and managing director Veronica Dalenius, the company Fredman & Månsson, invited the Tour group inside and recounted her experiences in the field, from the work in Finland as well as from her practice in Sweden. As in the other countries there were problems with the processing of the family law cases, particularly in cases with issues of violence and abuse. Amongst other things it was discussed how a screening tool for violence is now used in Finland.
Afterwards, a visit was paid to a shelter outside of the city of Helsinki. There was information about the background for Nordic Tour 2014 and the shelter received a collage with the motive from the Istanbul convention that was given to the child expert.
A visit was also paid to the district court of Helsinki, where information was given about the tour and contact established regarding the theme.
