In order to carry out its most important objectives and activities, the EJJO is able to call upon the European Council for Juvenile Justice, which is part of the Observatory´s structure, as an organ for meeting, discussions and analysis, acting at all times under the direction of the EJJO Board of Administration.
The European Council for Juvenile will assume the following functions:
a) Formulate recommendations with the European Juvenile Justice Observatory on the development and evolution of juvenile justice in Europe.
b) Obtain quantitative and qualitative information on the situation of children, adolescents and young people in conflict with the law within the region of Europe.
c) Serve as a transmitter of the European Juvenile Justice Observatory on the action lines that are being developed in various European countries in field related to the intervention with minors in conflict with the law.
d) Propose before the European Juvenile Justice Observatory the promotion of coordinated actions between public administrations, non-governmental organisations and academic and training centres, in various countries in Europe.
e) Draw up reports, opinions and proposals, at request of the European Juvenile Justice Observatory
f) Deal with all tasks the European Juvenile Justice Observatory asks of the Council based on its consultative nature.
The European Council for Juvenile Justice, as part of the European Juvenile Justice Observatory, joins representatives, all of which belong to the Member States, of competent public administrations in juvenile justice, universities or academic centres and NGO which are experts in legislation, execution, supervision, research or intervention in the field of juvenile justice.
The members of the Council will be those organisms, institutions or entities appointed specifically by the board of administration of the European Juvenile Justice Observatory.
