European Projects

The European Juvenile Justice Observatory, together with the International Juvenile Justice Observatory as well as other international organisms such as the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security, the Economic and Social Committee, the Council of Europe, the Justice ministries of the Member States and various universities and entities that work within the European region, have participated in proposing and developing projects in order to harmonise the European juvenile justice systems, mainly through two action lines:
- The drawing up of Proposals and Recommendations
- Advocacy and advice work.

The International Juvenile Justice Observatory and its European branch EJJO have cooperated in the following projects financed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security:

European Project DREJC

The objective of the IJJO within the European Project DREJC, financed by the European Comission´s Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security, is to stimulate, promote and develop multidisciplinary and European methods to strategically prevent juvenile delinquency connected to the use of drugs. The goal of the project is to develop an international study as well as some innovative recommendations in intervention procedures with young offenders and drug addicts in the interface between the criminal and treatment measures.

Project European Dimension
The IJJO is participating and monitoring the European project European Dimensions in Juvenile Delinquency. The objective of this programme, financed by European Comission´s Directorate-General for Justice, Freedom and Security is to promote effective indications to define programmes for the prevention of juvenile delinquency, taking into consideration the experiences and results that were obtained in five European countries. In each country and also on a global level, recent phenomena in juvenile delinquency, such as cyber-crime and e-bullying, the influence of drug use on crime, youth gangs and finally the exploitation of minor immigrants in crime, will be analysed and studied. These topics were also developed during the International Congress on Recent 'Phenomena in Juvenile Delinquency: new penal forms' organised by the IJJO in 2007.

The IJJO invites its users and collaborators who are interested, to contribute with their knowledge on these topics and to send us their suggestions, comments, researches, etc. regarding the development of efficient measures for the prevention of juvenile delinquency according to the four defined axes, by mail: oijj@oijj.org or on the IJJO Forum.
