The 2008 revision of the Swiss civil code implied a fundamental reorganisational change of the child and adult protection system in the canton of Berne. The formerly more than 300 communal tutelary authorities were replaced, on 1st of January 2013, by 11 cantonal, interdisciplinary and specialised authorities. The present project observes and evaluates the implementation of the new structures, their functioning as well as their collaboration with the most important cooperating partners in child and adult protection.
