Alternative Ways to Address Youth

– online professional training – Over the past 20 years, the juvenile justice system has undergone significant changes, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. Of course, these changes have affected the implementation of alternative measures, diversion, victim-aggressor mediation and other restorative techniques in most CEE countries.

Starting from this, rehabilitation and reintegration of juveniles in conflict with the law are measures that respond to the best interests of the child. The juvenile who has reached the age of […]
