Speaking at the event will be those undertaking research or undertaking practice concerning youth justice and children’s rights. Key topics which will be addressed at the symposium include:
The future of youth justice: Diversion, appropriate interventions or something else?
How novel statistical approaches can reveal ways of managing system contact with young people
Understanding rights and responsibilities as children perceive them
Commercial sexual exploitation and sexual violence in the context of children’s rights, protection and access to justice
How School Parliaments and participation processes can improve student behaviour and promote innovative and ‘preventative’ educational practice
The power of common production methodologies in enabling children to become partners for change
Why is it important to adopt children’s rights-based approaches in the context of justice?
This symposium may be of interest to academics, policy makers, youth justice officers, specialist child-focused NGO’s, teachers and youth workers.
We also invite papers for the symposium.
