Our partners and experts are working on producing reports and tools that will be uploaded on this website and shared through activities (conferences, trainings, etc.) among partner countries.
National reports from our partners
Mapping of the youth lawyers systems in the UE – overview of the existing youth lawyers systems in 18 countries (Legislation, Practice, Financing systems,Type of training youth lawyers get, Associations of youth lawyers and their functioning, existing tools at national level, etc.).
Our national reports provide an overview on how children feel and experience their right of access to a lawyer (the way they interact with him, the way they perceive him and with the rest of professionnals that interact in this relationship (social workers, educators, mediators, judges…), to which extent they can count on him at the different stages of the procedure,…).
They gather useful information on how European Directives are being implemented, not only from theory but also from the evidences on their practical application (obstacles, good practices, etc.), and present a number of recommendations and tools to improve the situation by addressing many specific aspects that intervene in the full exercise of the right of access to legal aid by children.
You will find here all the national reports and their short versions registered as “country overviews”.
