Under the patronage of UNESCO, the World Congress on Justice for Children will be held from 28-30 May 2018 at UNESCO House, Paris. It will address three major issues:

  • The global trend towards children’s involvement in violent extremism and possible responses,
  • The need for more effective ways to reduce juvenile offending and recidivism,
  • How to improve protection mechanisms for vulnerable children, including early prevention.

The event aims to bring together professionals and stakeholders from all around the world to share their perspectives on youth and family justice and the prevention of offending and violent extremism.
