Experts discuss transposing the children in judicial proceedings Directive

The third experts’ meeting on the state of play of the implementation of the EU’s Directive on procedural safeguards for children who are suspects or accused in criminal proceedings will take place in Brussels on 19 February.

The agency will provide expert input based on key findings and opinions from its research on child-friendly-justice and minimum age requirements in judicial proceedings. It will address specific challenges when implementing the procedural safeguards outlined in the Directive to ensure children’s rights to information and participation.

The Directive is due to be transposed by Member States on 11 June 2019.
