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

The Closed Educational Centers (“CEF: Centres Educatifs Fermés”, in French) was designed as an alternative to incarceration for 13 to 18 year-old persistent recidivists who commit serious acts. Today, the use of this measure is at the heart of many discussions such as the one organized by the Convention Nationale des Associations de Protection de l’Enfant.
