“Improving juvenile justice systems in Europe: Training for professionals”
The International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) is leading a project called “Improving juvenile justice systems in Europe: Training for professionals”, co-funded with the financial support of the Fundamental Rights & Citizenship Programme of the European Union.
This project is based on the recommendations of the IJJO’s White Paper on "Improving youth justice systems during a time of economic crisis".
The aim of the project is to promote the better implementation of international and European standards through the provision of information, knowledge and training to national authorities and staff working with children in conflict with the law across Europe.
Within this project´s framework, IJJO has developed training courses and materials available to any professional working with young people in conflict with the law. More specifically, a Manual in 12 languages and a Training Toolkit have been drafted by a group of experts on juvenile justice and children’s rights and have been used with success in national training workshops in the partner countries.
An online training course was launched in English by the International School of Juvenile Justice at the end of February, and will be available in several other languages in the coming weeks.
