The Child-Friendly Justice European Network

firmly believes that


There is no children's rights

without child-friendly justice!


Any child coming into contact with the justice system must be sure that it is adapted to his or her needs and rights. The CFJ-EN’s objective is therefore to advocate for the fundamental principles of a child-friendly justice by bringing together expertise that will contribute to concretely implement them.

Justice systems should ensure the realization of all children rights. Our vision is grounded on principles and rights enshrined in international standards and especially in the Council of Europe's Guidelines on Child-Friendly Justice

Many projects defending or promoting child-friendly justice have already emerged and are bringing about significant changes for children in contact with justice and professionals working in that field. 

When faced with the justice system, children are thrown into an intimidating world they often don’t understand. Adapting the justice systems to their needs is therefore a necessity.
