The FRA Director will open the event with key messages on children’s participation in judicial proceedings and how to ensure child-friendly treatment. The event will draw on the Agency’s research in this area highlighting areas of improvement and promising practices. Subsequent working groups will look at ways forward on child participation focusing on justice, child rights awareness raising and communication through different media channels to better reach children. Children will also take part during the event giving their views on what needs to be done to improve child participation.
