Description

Thailand will host the ‘National Symposium on Ending Violence against Children in Juvenile Justice System’ from the 28th to the 30th of June 2017 in Bangkok. This National Symposium will be preceded by an ‘International Workshop on Diversion through Restorative Justice’ from the 26th to the 27th of June, defined as a training session for professionals on Restorative Juvenile Justice practices.

The National Symposium on Ending Violence against Children in Juvenile Justice System will start with an international and regional focus day on the 28th. The next two days will focus specifically on Thailand and will only be open to Thai officials.

The National Symposium, preceded by the International Workshop on Restorative Justice, is organized and supported by the Department of Juvenile Observation and Protection (DJOP) and the Office of Justice Affairs under Ministry of Justice of Thailand; the Thailand Institute of Justice; UNICEF EAPRO; the International Juvenile Justice Observatory through its think-tank of experts in the region, the Asia-Pacific Council for Juvenile Justice; and Thailand’s ACWC Representative on Children’s Rights.

The Third Meeting of the APCJJ Subcommittee for ASEAN Member States will take place in the framework of these two events. The Third Meeting will focus on ‘Restorative juvenile justice and APCJJ’s latest outcomes’.

Being a pre-conference, the ‘International workshop on Diversion through Restorative Justice’ aims to exchange knowledge, models and effective methods on the conducting of diversionary measures, with a strong focus on the use of restorative justice practices. It will mainly focus on the theory and practices of restorative juvenile justice policies.

The aim is to provide an overview of how theory is translated into practice. European Experts, invited by the IJJO, including ECJJ members, will also discuss on how restorative justice principles and values are aligned with the UN principles with regards to the protection and prevention of violence against children and women.

Then, during the ‘National Symposium on Ending Violence against Children in Juvenile Justice System’, the focus will turn towards promoting and applying, at national and international levels, the United Nations Model Strategies and Practical Measures on the Elimination of Violence against Children in the Field of Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.

The IJJO will present the Conclusions of the Report of the 2nd Meeting of the APCJJ Subcommittee for ASEAN held in Bangkok in June 2016 with a particular focus on the work of the group on Regional guidelines on Juvenile Justice: promoting cross-border safeguards and defining strategies on elimination of violence against children in conflict with the law. Then the IJJO will give an overview regarding the APCJJ’s latest outcomes.
