IJJO Day by Day

The three day regional mentors meeting of the AWAY project, organised by the Terre des Hommes foundation, took place between 9th – 11th January 2018 in Budapest, Hungary. The event was chaired by researcher and curriculum developer at the Hintalovon Foundation, Szilvia Gyurkó, curriculum developer at the French National Academy for Youth Protection and Juvenile Justice, Jessica Filippi, and program leader at the Terre des Hommes foundation, Viki Sebhelyi. The AWAY project seeks to promote the use of diversion in juvenile justice. 

The first day of the meeting began with an opening speech by Joseph Aguettant, Head of Eastern Europe Region of the Terre des hommes foundation. This was followed by a series of presentations detailing the operations of the AWAY project alongside a number of other topics, including a presentation of research and on the particular issues regarding juvenile diversion in Romania, as well as discussions about the role of Child Advisory Boards.

The day ended with a brainstorming session among the participants about the objectives of the project’s online training course, which will be published in the coming months on the International School of Juvenile Justice's website.

The second day dealt with the development of the e-learning framework, beginning with an overview of the structure of e-learning materials before branching out into other areas. Notably, during a presentation of the first draft of the online training course, the participants discussed its contents, such as the legal module to be included within.

On the final day of the meeting, participants examined several concrete case studies and continued their work on the training materials, before the event was closed by Viki Sebhelyi.
