FRA will join an online panel discussion on 1 July on good practices for a child-friendly court. The panel aims to discuss good models of multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches in criminal proceedings that can support child participation, protect their best interests, and improve the quality of professional interventions through individual assessments.
The discussion is part of an international conference organised by the Bulgarian Center for Not-For-Profit Law (BCNL), in coordination with the Validity Foundation - Mental Disability Advocacy Centre. This conference is part of the EU-funded child-friendly justice project. The project focuses on improving the situation of vulnerable children, such as those with disabilities and deprived of parental care. FRA will draw on findings and opinions on child-friendly justice and work on procedural safeguards for children in criminal proceedings.
