Children and justice steering group meets

FRA took part in the 6th steering group meeting of the European Commission’s study to collect data on children in judicial proceedings.

The meeting took place on 26 September in Brussels where the key findings from research into national and international datasets on children’s involvement in criminal, civil and administrative proceedings were presented. A summary of the EU report on criminal justice was also presented. During the meeting, steering group members shared information about current Commission, Council of Europe and FRA work, including how the work is interlinked. They also discussed further cooperation on child-friendly versions of the Council of Europe guidelines on access to justice for children.
