SRSG Santos Pais participates in the World Congress on Juvenile Justice organized by Switzerland and the Terre des hommes Foundation, the WORLD CONGRESS ON JUVENILE JUSTICE aims to become a milestone in the implementation of international norms.
States and civil society are invited to participate in order to share experiences, lessons learned and good practices. This exchange is undertaken in a spirit of inter-cultural dialogue and respect for the rights of children in conflict with the law and children who are victims/survivors and witnesses – also in the interests of society as a whole.
The Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Swiss Federal Office of Justice and the Terre des hommes Foundation have devised the Congress agenda to improve the institutional system of juvenile justice and promote respect for the fundamental rights of children, by encouraging implementation of legal instruments ratified by States.
