Tuesday 30th of January 2018
IJJO Day by Day

The third steering group meeting of the ‘FACT FOR MINORS’ project, which deals with alternative care for young offenders with psychological disorders, took place on 16th, 17th and 18th January at the Catholic University of Porto, in Portugal. The project is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union.

The meeting agenda was introduced by the coordinating partner, the Italian National Confederation of Socio-educational Communities (CNCA). This was followed by an introduction to the Work Stream 2 (WS2) activities relating to the capacity-building process by the Italian partner Psychoanalytic Institute for Social Research (IPRS).

A general presentation of the project´s activities was made by partners from Finland, Spain, Germany, Italy and Portugal, who described the results relating to WS2, presented their national objectives, the new model of intervention, which is based on a multidisciplinary approach, and the development of a testing process.

The presentation then continued in the afternoon with a conversation between partners, in the presence of stakeholders and experts from five partner countries. The discussion mainly centred on the primary difficulties encountered when implementing the pilot projects, and the strategies found to overcome them.

On the second day, the transnational meeting with experts and stakeholders took place. The representatives of each partner country from these two groups discussed the topics tackled the day before, as well as the multiagency model.

In the afternoon, Ms Marianne Moore, the IJJO´s consultant for the project, presented the first two modules of the online course that will be available to 40 professionals and will be launched during the final conference of the project, to be held in Brussels in June.

The third day started with the Transnational Advisory Board Meeting (TAB3). The representatives from the Italian partner Dipartimento giustizia minorile (DJJ) introduced the Work Stream 1 activities.

Then, a plenary session proceeded with the representatives from state authorities, which was coordinated by Isabella Mastropasqua, from the Italian DJJ. This was followed by a session dedicated to the conclusion of the WS1 and WS2. The partners also devised the agenda for the following months.

During the last session of the meeting, the coordinator of the project presented the main activities of WS3, which concerned the dissemination strategies for the project’s results and outputs.
