Addressing children’s vulnerabilities in detention - Jean-Jacques Gautier NPM Symposium 2014 Outcome Report

In June 2014, the APT organised the first Jean-Jacques Gautier NPM Symposium, Addressing children’s vulnerabilities in detention, to discuss the vulnerabilities and risks faced by children deprived of their liberty and explore how NPMs can effectively address these issues.

This report seeks to support NPMs established under the OPCAT and all those working to protect the rights of children deprived of liberty, by highlighting the key issues, strategies, good practices and ways forward deriving from the discussions among participants.
