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 2005
Study of Comparative Law: Protection of Minors

The Eduardo Benot Institute for Juvenile Law and Social Science, an organisation which is part of the Diagrama Foundation, in collaboration with the Research Group "Children and Law" of the Faculty of Law at the Comillas Pontifical University of Madrid (Spain), participated in a research project to draw up a report on the child-protection Systems of Spain, Germany, France, England and Italy.

This report, commissioned by the Madrid Institute for Minors and the Family, entitled: "Protection of Minors: Study of Comparative Law (Spain, Germany, France, England and Italy)"; focused on the analysis of the situation of children at risk, children in situations of neglect, unaccompanied foreign minors and children with behavioural disorders.

This study allows for the determination of legal concepts and practices developed in other countries, with the aim of making proposals to the child-protection system in Spain, in order to confront the new situations and realities that society has to cope with.
