Training - Juvenile Justice

Training those in contact with children in conflict with the law (judicial staff, social workers, penitentiary staff, police, and so on) is of outmost importance to ensure children's rights respect and mainstreaming. To this extent, the International Juvenile Justice Observatory runs an on-line platform, the International School of Juvenile Justice, which offers on-line training all year round to those interested in improving their knowledge.

At present, the International School of Juvenile Justice offers three modules discussing the ins and outs of juvenile justice (International and European standards, the issue of the minimum age of criminal responsability, of pre-trial detention, diversion, restorative justice, social reintegration and after care, and more more topics) thanks to the collaboration of Prof. Dr. Ton Liefaard, who holds the UNICEF Chair in Children's Rights at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands and use to direct the University of Utrecht Summer School on Juvenile Justice.

Available to all, these modules cover the basics of juvenile justice and give methods for further exploration of the topic.
