What is the MCE network?

Cross-Border Family Mediators (CBFM) is a network of family mediators worldwide who are trained specifically to deal with cross-border family conflicts, including international parental child abduction. 

The general aim of the Cross-Border Family Mediators’ network is to prevent, support and protect children from harm related to cross border family disputes, in particular cases of international parental abductions. The Cross-Border Family Mediators’ network acts in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, in particular article 3 on the best interest of the child, and article 9 on the right to contact with both parents.
