About

Because there are no children's rights without child friendly justice, we, as juvenile justice experts, consider that it is necessary to adapt justice systems to the specifities of children: their particular needs and their vulnerabilities. Each of our members is already making a change in that field but we felt that it is essential to coordinate our actions across Europe to widen our impact and harmonise practices. 

 

Our work is grounded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and in the Guidelines for a child friendly justice developed by the Council of Europe.

Working together in a network enables us to:
