EUROPEAN CRIMINAL LAW SEMINAR

Title: Juvenile Justice and the Directive on Childrens’ Rights

Member states must respect, protect and promote children's rights. All EU policies that have an impact on children must be designed in line with the best interests of the child. Justice has commented “the proposed Directive provides much to be welcomed in the assessment and support of children’s needs during the criminal process. However, substantial amendment by the Member States in the Council of Ministers has diluted the safeguards it might provide.”

In the chair: Professor John Spencer

Speakers:

Professor Estella Baker, de Montfort University

Steven Cras, Council of the European Union


This seminar is organised in collaboration with the European Criminal Law Association (UK)
