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.

2011 - IJJO Events and Programmes

May 2011 El Salvador
Project "Support to the Municipality of La Union in the creation and development of public policies and services for child care and youth"

In order to create favourable living conditions for children and young people living in unsafe conditions and / or social vulnerability in El Salvador, the Latin American Juvenile Justice Observatory (LJJO) is involved in the development of a project to support the Municipality of La Union in the development of services for young people and of public policy to encourage the participation of children and young people in initiatives aimed at reducing their vulnerability. The Latin American Observatory on Juvenile Justice has provided technical assistance for the development of this policy and its initiatives.

April 2011 Paraguay
Project "Comprehensive Care for Adolescents Women in conflict with the law and children deprived of their family environment"

By participating in the Project "Comprehensive Care for Adolescents Women in conflict with the law and children deprived of their family environment”, the Latin American Juvenile Justice Observatory (LJJO) aims to foster a paradigm shift in the implementation of Juvenile Justice in Paraguay. In order to promote the shift from a repressive and punitive doctrine where teens are treated as adults, towards a new one based on the respect for the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Standards on Juvenile Justice, ratified by the Paraguayan State. In this sense, the adolescent is to be considered a subject in its own right, a human being in development who is to be integrated back into society.

February 2011 Italy

With the objective of promoting the advances reached since its constitution and of establishing narrower lines of collaboration between its members, on the 11 of November 2010 the Second Conference of the European Council of Juvenile Justice was celebrated in Rome, within the framework of the Fourth International Conference of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory.

January 2011

The IJJO participated in the 'Workshop: Education of Minors deprived of Liberty in Africa', organized by IDAY and DCI (Belgium) in Brussels in January 2011, in which African and European organizations that work in Africa in the field of education and juvenile justice participated. The workshop had the objective of promoting and reflecting on the right to an education of minors in conflict with the law and who are deprived of liberty in Africa. The importance of the development of better coordination between the actors of this sector, Europeans on the one hand, Africans on the other, and especially the commitment of African organizations to these problems was emphasized. Finally a more constructive vision of education in juvenile justice systems, in order to promote basic rights for minors in conflict with the law, was recommended.
