World Congress on Juvenile Justice

Organization: Terres des Hommes
Event link:

There are countless national laws and international conventions on juvenile justice. The challenge for law-makers and civil society is how to apply them – while respecting the interests of victims, young offenders and the communities they live in.

For the first time, representatives of governments and civil society will meet in Geneva this month to discuss together the future of juvenile justice. For five days, the 800 participants will have the opportunity to listen to 100 expert speakers in 32 workshops and share best practices.

The congress has been jointly organized by the Swiss government and children’s aid foundation, Terre des hommes.
