11th European Forum on the rights of the child – Side event: Pathways – the vulnerabilities of children concerned by deprivation of liberty

European Comission


This is a report of a side event at the 11th European Forum on the rights of the child which served to raise awareness of the circumstances and situation of children leading to deprivation of liberty (pathways), vulnerabilities occurring during and resulting from deprivation of liberty and also offered ample opportunity to consider the many intersections among the topics covered by the Forum, e.g. the high proportion of children in institutions/ care who end up in conflict with the law, etc.

While the Forum discussions focused in a very practical way on alternatives to detention (raising awareness on what they consist of, fostering their use/expansion/looking at good practice/looking at prioritisation including via funding, the side event also allowed some time to consider what happens to a child prior to, during and after deprivation of liberty (either theirs or that of their parents) and thus contributed to informed Forum discussions.
