5th Edition: Children Deprived of Liberty and Youth Criminal Justice
Moncton Campus of the Université de Moncton
Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada
Join us in Moncton for an in-depth discussion and dialogue where we will explore, learn and share knowledge and understanding of children’s rights and well-being, with experts who work at the forefront of child welfare and the defense of youth rights around the world.
This summer, the International Summer Course on the Rights of the Child will examine both situations where children and youth are deprived of their liberty, as well as their right to a separate system of criminal justice. The course will invite participants to reflect upon and contribute to research efforts concerning the new Global Study on the conditions of children deprived of liberty, announced in December 2014 by the United Nations General Assembly. The course will also cover best practices from around the world regarding the implementation of the child’s right to a criminal justice system adapted to their situation and level of maturity.
A unique discussion forum
Feedback on the previous editions of the Summer Course attests to the high caliber of this global training event. The topics foster the development of a targeted learning on current child rights issues. The course fosters closer links among child rights experts and professionals of every kind involved in services to children and young people. Participants and lecturers can exchange within the formal sessions and informally throughout the week-long event. It is an intense high quality training event by reputed experts in the field.
This summer course has become one of the premiere training events for children's rights nationally and globally, as demonstrated by the growing participation of statutory experts such as Child and Youth advocates, Children's Commissioners, Ombudsman, Human Rights Commissions, as well as participation from the Bar, the Bench and professional associations in health, education and social work sectors. Summer Course participants always welcome the strong networking opportunities, as well as the relaxed, convivial atmosphere near the sunny shores of the Northumberland Straight.
