Symposium on procedural safeguards directive for child suspects

External event
On 15 June, FRA will deliver a keynote speech at a symposium organised by the regional group of the German Association of Youth Court Assistants.

The focus will be on the practical implementation in the state of Bremen of the EU procedural safeguards Directive and ways to move forward.

FRA’s Procedural Safeguards report looked at the practical implementation of the Directive on procedural safeguards for children in criminal proceedings in nine Member States. It was part of FRA’s capacity-building activities to make justice in the EU more child-friendly. This draws on research such as the Perspective and Experience of Children involved in judicial proceedings, and minimum age requirements.
