Dear colleagues,

Child Protection Hub and Terre des hommes invite you to join the webinar on procedural rights of juveniles suspected or accused in criminal proceedings in the EU.

Date and time: this Wednesday, March, 8th, at 4-5pm CET.

About the webinar:

In 2015-2017 Terre des hommes run a project to ensure that foreign children who are accused or suspected of crimes in EU countries have access to a fair trial. The project specifically looked at the application of key EU Directives on the rights to interpretation and translation, the right to information, and the right to access to a lawyer and communications with third parties and consular authorities.

This webinar will present the findings of the regional comparative research that looked at whether foreign children, suspected or accused in criminal proceedings, effectively exercise their rights. The webinar will also present a handbook for legal practitioners to assist those working with children in such circumstances.

You can read the Regional Comparative Report "Procedural Rights of Children Suspected or Accused in criminal Proceedings in the EU" here.

The Handbook for Legal Practitioners is available here.
