Short description:
The International Juvenile Justice Observatory is conceived as an inter-disciplinary system of information, communication, debates, analysis and proposals concerning different areas which affect the development of juvenile justice in the world.
The focus of the work undertaken by the International Juvenile Justice Observatory centres on issues relating to minors and young people in conflict with the law.
The main objective established is the development of minors and young people so they can acquire the skills they need to become free citizens outside the circuits of exclusion and reclusion.
The mission of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory is to bring an international and inter-disciplinary vision of juvenile justice in order to create a future for minors and young people all over the world who are in situations of exclusion leading to infringements of the law.
