We encourage states in Europe to provide effective access to justice for children in contact with the justice system. We support non-custodial measures for children and of stronger procedural safeguards. With our partners, we promote the use of restorative justice in cases involving children, either as victims or suspects/offenders. Through innovative participatory methodologies, we empower children to advocate for their own rights. At regional level, we facilitate the sharing of best practices and learning, awareness-raising and advocacy for child-friendly justice. We also support the creation of the Barnahus multi-disciplinary service that provides care for child victims and witnesses of violence and abuse.
