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.

April 2011 Paraguay
Project "Comprehensive Care for Adolescents Women in conflict with the law and children deprived of their family environment"

By participating in the Project "Comprehensive Care for Adolescents Women in conflict with the law and children deprived of their family environment”, the Latin American Juvenile Justice Observatory (LJJO) aims to foster a paradigm shift in the implementation of Juvenile Justice in Paraguay. In order to promote the shift from a repressive and punitive doctrine where teens are treated as adults, towards a new one based on the respect for the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Standards on Juvenile Justice, ratified by the Paraguayan State. In this sense, the adolescent is to be considered a subject in its own right, a human being in development who is to be integrated back into society.
