Listening to Children about justice: Report of the Council of Europe. Consultation with children on child-friendly justice

Dr Ursula Kilkelly


This report has two main aims: first, it presents the views of children gathered during the Council of Europe’s consultation exercise on child-friendly justice. Second, it reports on the consultation process itself and reflects on what lessons can be learned in order to improve any subsequent initiatives to involve children in the Council of Europe’s standard-setting work. The Report is divided into four parts. The first part outlines how the research was planned, and what methodology and approaches were used. This identifies the limitations of the research methods used and makes some suggestions for how future research can be undertaken by the Council of Europe. The second part of the research contains an overview of the literature on the experiences of children in the justice system. This is designed to provide a context for the third part of the research which presents a qualitative analysis of the data gathered through this study. The fourth and final section reports on how the Guidelines have been enriched by the views, experiences and wishes of the children consulted.
