Summary/Abstract: The complexity of family relationships resulting from the dynamics of economic life, parents working abroad for the achievement of material well-being, without involving the minors in the new social life that they start, make minors vulnerable and often transform them into victims of their own emotions. The role of the state is to protect the minor in any situation that endangers physical and emotional development, but also to alert parents and hold them responsible with respect to the decisions they make and which affect the minors.The basis of child protection is represented by parental care. In addition, the protection of the minor is also achieved by establishing guardianship, by putting in placement or, as the case may be, by other special protection measures provided by the law. The notion of minor, to which the legal provisions on protection are applied, is used with an acceptance extending to: children with Romanian citizenship living on the Romanian territory; children with Romanian citizenship living abroad; children without citizenship located on Romanian territory; children who request or benefit from a form of protection under the legal regulations on the status and regime of refugees in Romania; foreign citizens on the territory of Romania, in emergencies ascertained, under the present law, by the competent Romanian public authorities. The state institutions involved in supervising minor’s rights and freedoms are: The National Authority for the Protection of the Rights of the Child; The Child Protection Commission; The General Directorate for Social Assistance and Child Protection; The social assistence public service; The Romanian Office for Adoptions.
