What we do

The International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) constitutes a permanent international virtual space that serves as a point of encounter for the work and reflection of professionals, administrations and organizations involved in the field of juvenile justice. In different countries it enhances global, national and local analyses of the phenomenon, analysing the different ways in which young people come into conflict with the law, examining not only the aspects that these manifestations have in common, but also the way in which the causes of the phenomenon differ.

The organization of events, seminars, workshops, courses and the participation in international and European programmes allow the dissemination of relevant information, experience, works and materials that have been produced as a result of initiatives taken by the Observatory, or by individuals or bodies working independently of it.

2010 - IJJO Events and Programmes

March 2010

Since April 2009, a group of experts in the field of juvenile justice and children’s rights has been working on the preparation of these European guidelines. The International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) and at European level, the European JuvenileJustice Observatory (EJJO), are among the several organizations that make up this Group of Specialists on child-friendly justice. The objective of the Group of Specialists is to produce comprehensive guidelines on child-friendly justice, which will assist member states in ensuring that children have favourable access to justice.

March 2010 Belgium

On 18 and 19 February, the Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security held a Meeting of Experts on the protection of victims and victims’ rights. Over fifty experts from practically every Member State were present at the meeting. The experts in attendance were both representatives of the Member States themselves (mainly coming from the states’ different justice ministries) as well as various organizations, associations and research groups who carry out work with victims. The International Juvenile Justice Observatory was invited to this meeting, to address the specific problem of minor victims in legal proceedings.
