The third and final study visit and national seminar of the IJJO-led project ‘Strengthening juvenile justice systems in the counter-terrorism context: Capacity-building and peer learning among stakeholders’ took place in Bremen, Germany, from 11th to 13th December 2017. This event was organised by the Bremen Ministry of Justice and Constitution and was attended by the ‘Strengthening’ project partners, as well as invited consultants and stakeholders. 

The first day of the study visit began with welcome remarks from the Bremen organisers, followed by a roundtable of presentations on various anti-radicalisation projects in Germany. These presentations also included a very rich discussion with a teenager from the local school on the themes covered by the ‘Strengthening’ project.

On the second day, the study visit participants attended a National Seminar composed of various presentations from different perspectives on multiple aspects of juvenile justice in the counter-terrorism context.

Welcoming words by Dr. Alexander Vollbach (Deputy Head of the Department of Prison and Alternative Sanctions, Bremen Senate of Justice and Constitution) were followed by contibrutions from representatives of the Lower Saxonie Centre of Prevention on Prison and Radicalisation, the Bremen Senate of Justice and Constitution, the Bremen Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the Senate of Social Affairs’ Democracy Centre and the University of Bremen.

On the final day, participants discussed and evaluated the German projects in an internal session. This was followed by a final IJJO-led discussion among project partners on the ‘Strengthening’ project’s next steps, covering the national and the regional reports, the online community of practice and the project white paper, among other topics.
