In 2016, the European Union passed a Directive establishing common minimum standards on procedural safeguards for children that are binding across the EU. This represented a considerable consolidation and reinforcement of existing international and European standards, and significantly strengthens the procedural protections available to children in conflict with the law.

This course has been designed to accompany the residential training provided by Fair Trials and our partner organisations in the Advancing the Defence Rights of Children project. It offers a useful introduction to the core juvenile justice concepts, legal instruments and extra-legal understanding of adolescent development required by practitioners working with child suspects and accused persons.
