From its foundation, research has been one of the principle areas of action of the Observatory, which has coordinated and participated in multiple studies and projects at both national and international level.

Among them, it is worth highlighting those related to the rights of children involved in criminal proceedings, child-friendly justice, restorative justice, diversion measures, specialisation of justice professionals, prevention of radicalisation and of recidivism, and reintegration into society.
