The goal of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) is to raise public awareness about children's rights, particularly of children in conflict with the law.
Every two years, the IJJO organises an International Conference on juvenile justice for professionals, institutions and universities and other organisations working on this issue.
The Second International Conference of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory will explore the challenges of promoting harmonisation of legislation and common methods of prevention, treatment and integration policies for children in conflict with the law.
The First International Conference, Justice and the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency in a Globalised World, took place in Salamanca, Spain, in October 2004, with the participation of more than 300 people from 30 countries from all over the world.
To extend this work on looking at different strategies for juvenile crime prevention, the International Juvenile Justice Observatory helped draft a European Opinion on Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency. The Models of Treatment of Juvenile Delinquency and the Role of the Juvenile Justice in the European Union was submitted to the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), by Mr. José Maria Zufiaur, President of the Latin American Follow-up Committee and Adviser of the EESC.
