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.

May 2012 Spain Law, Minors, Penal

On the May 10th of 2012, the International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) participated in the Meeting on Juvenile Criminal Law, organized by the Bar association of Legal Advisers of the Cadiz province in collaboration with the Town Council of Chiclana. This is a day of training for nearly 200 professionals in the field of legal assistance to juvenile offenders, including a large number of lawyers, judges and magistrates.

During the conference, professionals had the opportunity to know about the daily work of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory that presented its work which promotes Juvenile Justice both at international and European level. Specifically, it detailed the activities carried out by the Councils of Juvenile Justice which are created by the Observatory in each region worldwide. The Councils are think-tanks that bring together experts and professionals in the field of juvenile justice to address issues related to the rights of minors in conflict with the law. Besides, it presented the results of the work of the European Council of Juvenile Justice through the OIJJ Green Papers on child-friendly justice.

April 2012 Austria Abuse, Health, Justice, Mental, Minors, Offences, Offenders, Penal, Prevention

The IJJO organized jointly with UNODC in collaboration with the Permanent Mission of Thailand a Side Event “Mental Health and Young Offenders: A challenge for the justice and the health system” in Vienna on the 27th of April 2012, during the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice 2012. Within the framework of the Mental Health and Young Offenders advocacy activities, the IJJO promotes and develops several advocacy actions. In this occasion, this MHYO Side event aims to raise awareness on the specific needs of vulnerable children with mental health problems, illnesses and disorders in the criminal justice system.

April 2012 Child, Infancy

According to the UNICEF Executive Director, ‘When many of us think of the world’s poorest children, the image that comes readily to mind is that of a child going hungry in a remote rural community in sub-Saharan Africa – as so many are today. Nevertheless, the UNICEF latest report ‘The State of the World’s Children 2012: Children in an Urban World’ shows that millions of children in cities and towns all over the world are also at risk of being left behind’.

The IJJO is highly concerned on the situation of these children, having in mind that increasing numbers of children are growing up in urban areas. Therefore, UNICEF confirms that the most deprived and vulnerable are most often excluded from progress and most difficult to reach. Besides, they require particular attention not only in order to secure their entitlements but also as a matter of ensuring the fulfilment of everyone’s rights.
