After presenting to international government groups around the world, a research organization brought its findings on juvenile detention to the University of Minnesota Law School Wednesday afternoon.

Juvenile Justice Advocates International, in partnership with groups around the country including the University's Human Rights Center and University students, studied the amount of time juveniles spend in detention centers while awaiting trial in 118 countries around the world and the effects it can have on them.

“The report really started from our work in Mexico,” said Douglas Keillor, founder and executive director of JJAI. “And one of the issues that we work on is trying to ensure that children who are detained get a court hearing and a trial as quickly as possible.”
