The ECJJ and the European institutions

Since its launch in 2009, the European Council for Juvenile Justice (ECJJ) has been nurturing fruitful relations with the European institutions, notably the European Commission and the Council of Europe, in order to ensure the most productive collaboration possible.

If the European Council for Juvenile Justice is a pool of institutions and experts, whose knowledge and experience when it comes to child-friendly justice is most valuable, the European Commission and the Council of Europe remain the main decision-makers at a European level.

To this extent, in order to foster child-friendly justice throughout Europe, the ECJJ strives toward cooperation and collaboration with European institutions most likely to have an impact on the rights of children in conflict with the law.
