The World Congress on Justice for Children will be held from 28-30 May 2018 and will focus on global trends in three important areas. The meeting will address the global trend towards children’s involvement in violent extremism and the possible responses to this problem, the need for more effective ways to reduce juvenile offending and recidivism, and ways to improve protection mechanisms for vulnerable children.
The Congress aims to bring together professionals and stakeholders from all around the world to share their perspectives on youth and family justice and the prevention of offending and violent extremism. The event is organised by a group of international organisations including the International Association of Youth and Family Judges and Magistrates, Terre des hommes Foundation, and Penal Reform International with Child Rights International Network, Defence for Children International, Judicial Training Institute of Belgium and the Information for All Programme of UNESCO.
