‘Advancing the Defence Rights for Children’ is a project led by Fair Trials International and carried out in collaboration with four partner organisations, including the IJJO. It is funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union. Its overall objective is to support defence lawyers to improve skills and knowledge in order to provide effective assistance to children in criminal proceedings. The project does so by developing an adaptable and interdisciplinary training programme, which focuses on interactive exercises to apply skills in practice, as well as training that responds to local needs.
