Childhood and Justice. First stage

The Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union (FRA) has published, this May, the report on the first stage of the research on the relationship between the judicial area and children when the latter are witnesses, victims or parties of civil or penal proceedings. This first stage, in which both Gabinet d'Estudis Socials and the Moviment for Peace cooperated, relates to the views provided by professionals such as psychologists, social workers, etc., about these relations through 55 interviews and 1 Focus Group. The basic finding of this report is that the judicial system should be more child-friendly in Spain and everywhere in Europe and completely avoid that chiildren feel stressed or confused whenever they have any contact with it
