EU child-friendly justice network to take a 360° view on challenges ahead

External event
FRA will take part in the first annual seminar of the EU-funded EU Child-friendly Justice Network.

Taking a 360° view, professionals, academics, civil society representatives and authorities will meet in Brussels on 14 October to exchange views on how to best make justice more child-friendly across the EU.

Specific workshops will span the whole range of roles when children are involved in judicial proceedings: administrative, civil, and criminal. They will address questions of intersectionality and digital justice.

FRA will be part of a high-level panel setting the scene. It will specifically address the needs of children, in particularly vulnerable situations, such as LGBTI children, and present its newest research on child-friendly justice focussing on procedural safeguards for children in criminal proceedings.
