26 – 30 January 2015
International Conference Centre of Geneva
The first ever World Congress on Juvenile Justice will take place in Geneva in January 2015. This week-long event aims to become a milestone in the implementation of international norms relating to children in conflict with law and children who are victims, survivors or witnesses.
The Congress, hosted by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Office of Justice and the Terre des Hommes Foundation, will bring together States, international organisations, civil society representatives and other interested stakeholders in order to share experiences, lessons learned and good practices in the area of juvenile justice and improve international cooperation on children affected by justice systems worldwide.
PRI will be represented at the Congress by Nikhil Roy, Programme Development Director, Taghreed Jaber, Regional Director of PRI’s MENA Office, and Becky Randel, PRI Research and Fundraising Coordinator.
We will be making a range of interventions, sharing our resources and promoting our ongoing work in the areas of informal justice and international norms, the gender perspective in juvenile justice, conditions in detention and success factors in implementing diversion and non-custodial measures.
Registration is now open and the Draft Agenda is available online. For more information on the Congress and how to register, visit the Congress website or follow these links for information in Russian and Arabic.
