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

October 2007 France

The International Juvenile Justice Observatory, was a co-organizer and member of the scientific committee of the International Conference on 'The migration of unaccompanied minors in Europe: the contexts of origin, the migration routes and the reception systems', which took place at Poitiers (France) on the 10th and 11th of October 2007.

This conference aimed to generate a forum of exchange and discussion on this issue and intended to establish two main objectives: on the one hand, to establish a dialogue between researchers and specialized practitioners in order to put forward a more coherent social and legal treatment to help make respect of children's rights prevail over immigration rules (as a recent judgement from the European Court of Human Rights has established). On the other hand, the forum intended to integrate the research findings on this issue with the purpose of achieving a better understanding of the current migration trends and to develop a methodological understanding in order to acquire knowledge of the contexts of origin and the different dimensions of the increasing problem of separated children from numerous countries.

June 2007

The International Juvenile Justice Observatory is pleased to highlight its collaboration with Katerina Batzeli, a Greek Member of the European Parliament, on the opinion proposal entitled 'Report on juvenile delinquency, the role of women, the family and society', to the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality.

The aim was to stimulate discussions on the latest research findings among researchers and practitioners from universities, non-governmental organisations, European regional bodies and professional practitioners on various aspects of children involved in migration in Europe, from the perspective of children's rights, in order to improve research in this field.
