What we do

January 2010 - September 2011 - European Union Drug, Offenders, Prevention

Within the framework of the European Programme “drug prevention and information”, the International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) is collaborating on The European Project. 'Juvenile Drug Use. Tertiary prevention strategies-”. According to the review of several studies and researches there have recently been several changes on the profile, age of first use of young people and drugs misuse. Bearing in mind that the target group of the present programme is youngsters in conflict with the law with substance misuse with community based sanctions, the partners project members will propose a reflection on the issue and tackle the national service strategies which are currently managing our target group. An interdisciplinary vision which involves the youth justice, public health and social services is crucial in the present approach. The possibility of establishing an exchange and transnational comparison – within Europe – that focuses on the development and implementation of effective strategies based on the analysis of the promising strategies at EU level, increases the efficacy of networks that include diverse institutions and the multidisciplinary nature that characterizes these networks.

December 2008 - July 2011 - European Union Delinquency, Offenders, Prevention

The IJJO participated and monitored the European project European Dimensions in Juvenile Delinquency. The objective of this programme, financed by the Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security of the European Commission, was to promote efficient indications to define programmes for the prevention of juvenile delinquency by taking into consideration the experiences and results that were obtained in five European countries. In each country and also on a global level, recent phenomena in juvenile delinquency, like cyber-crime and E-bullying, the influence of drug use on crime, youth gangs and finally the exploitation of minor immigrants in crime, were analysed and studied. These topics were also developed during the International Congress on Recent 'Phenomena in Juvenile Delinquency: new penal forms' organised by the IJJO in 2007.

December 2008 - February 2010 - European Union Drug, Juvenile, Prevention

The project Drejc, Drug Related Juvenile Crime JLS/2007/ISEC 500 lasted 2 years, among the specific objective to be achieved, the analysis of drug related juvenile crime aimed to individuate and define: the significant variables for the creation of European Recommendation arising from reflections based on the praxis proposed by partners; the common and shared indicators on legal and operating models of intervention towards the minor; the prevailing crimes where minors are involved through analysis of the criminal activities areas and the dimension of the juvenile involvement; the legal and operating interventions paths of prevention and rehabilitation. The different specific responses depended of course also on the legal framework within which the project’s activities and intervention have been implemented.
