On 13 April 2018, the Leiden Law School organizes the international symposium ‘Deprivation of Liberty of Children in The Justice System – Towards a Global Research Agenda’.
The symposium aims to bring together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars, practitioners, advocates and representatives of NGO’s and governments to exchange research and knowledge about deprivation of liberty of children in the justice system. In doing so, the symposium aims to contribute to the ‘United Nations Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty’. Several renowned international experts will speak about issues of child detention and alternatives. Moreover, a delegation from the United Nations Independent Expert, who leads the ‘Global Study’, and a representative of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child will be present. For more information about the program, check the Leiden University website.
The symposium offers participants the opportunity to bring their organization and projects to the attention of the other participants and speakers during the network lunch, for example by means of a poster presentation or the distribution of flyers. Herewith, the symposium aims to serve as an international platform for organizations, practitioners and scholars who work in the field of juvenile justice and children’s rights.
