INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM Deprivation of Liberty of Children in The Justice System Towards a Global Research Agenda

Friday 13 April 2018


It is estimated that on any given day millions of children are deprived of their liberty worldwide. Many of these children are placed in detention facilities because they are suspected or found guilty of committing a criminal offence. This international symposium addresses deprivation of liberty of children in the context of juvenile criminal justice from international and interdisciplinary perspectives. The symposium aims to exchange research and knowledge and to develop a specific interdisciplinary research agenda that can be supportive to the United Nations Study on Children Deprived of Liberty and to governments in implementing international children’s rights standards.
