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.

March 2006

Since 2004, the International Juvenile Justice Observatory has been taking part in the European Agis Project, entitled "Protection of Children in and from Prison", based on research into the situation of children in custodial institutions. The main objective was to establish a programme or a common approach of good practices among the countries of the European Union, which will enable the staff of these institutions to acquire the necessary skills to offer greater protection to young people, with the aim of preventing abuse and bullying, combating re-offending and the repetition of the abuse suffered in prison on release.

The first meeting of the Agis partners took place in November 2004, in Cologne (Germany), where various work topics were established to be later analysed and further developed. The conclusions of the Agis project were presented during the final conference in England in December 2005.
