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.

IJJO Events and Programmes

February 2009
European Commission. Monitoring Committee on European Minimum Standards in Pre-trial Detention Procedures

On February 9th 2009, the IJJO participated at a meeting of experts organised by the Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security of the European Commission concerning pre-trial detention procedures in the Member States, in order to consider the establishment of common European minimum rules on pre-trial detention, focusing specifically on minors and young people.

In respect of the minors in conflict with the law, the experts emphasized that the European arrest warrant, in accordance with the Council Framework Decision of June 13th 2002, cannot be served due to the differences in the age of criminal responsibility between the European Union Member States, as well as the more protective or punishing trends in national juvenile justice systems.

 

We invite you to consult the IJJO recommendations on pretrial detention for juveniles: IJJO recommendations.

January 2009

The International Juvenile Justice Observatory was recently granted participatory status by the Council of Europe. Since 1952, the Council of Europe recognises the NGOs influence and offers them the opportunity to participate, as a vital component of European society, ensuring freedom of expression and association, both of which are fundamental to democracy.

Thanks to this recognition, the IJJO will seize the opportunity to develop new initiatives and proposals that will be submitted for debate within this Institution, which represents 47 States of the European continent.
