The Final Conference of the European project Children’s Rights Behind Bars was held on the 15th of February 2016 at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels, Belgium. The main focal point of the event was the presentation of the  ‘Practical Guide to Monitoring Places where Children Are Deprived of Liberty’, which was released earlier this year. The symposium was the culmination of this project, lead by the Belgian branch of Defence for Children (DCI-Belgium) and funded by the Criminal Justice Programme of the European Union.

The forum gave the floor to numerous esteemed experts on the issue of children’s rights. Among those present were two delegates of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory, Cédric Foussard and Sophie Duroy.

The newly published ‘Practical Guide to Monitoring Places where Children Are Deprived of Liberty’ constituted the centerpiece of the event. The Guide was described as a practical tool to be used by a broad range of professionals entitled to monitor and visit places where children are deprived of their liberty. This publication offers a child sensitive and preventive perspective, based on a child specific approach.

All of the presentations, along with other useful materials and pictures from the conference, are available and ready to download from the CRBB website. It is also possible to download or order the 'Practical Guide to Monitoring Places where Children Are Deprived of Liberty', both in English and French.
