Juveniles and procedural rights

Expert Seminar


A seminar of experts was held on 17 November 2016 where key actors involved in the protection of the procedural rights of foreign children (lawyers, judges, prosecutors and members of the technical teams, law enforcement officers, members of NGOs, etc.) were invited to participate. The conclusions of the national report were presented and examined, the objective of the seminar being twofold: on the one hand, assess the diagnosis of the situation contained in the report and discuss the possible solutions to the identified problems and, on the other hand, determine and confirm whether the recommendations to the relevant authorities are suitable to ensure that juveniles exercise fully and effectively the rights recognized in the EU Directives.
