Children's Participation in Justice Processes: Finding the Best Ways Forward

Draft Agenda

 

The symposium features a preliminary conference on 14 September 2017 as well as two keynote speakers and five concurrent workshop sessions over two days on 15 and 16 September 2016. The final workshop schedules will be released in July 2017, and participants will be asked to register for the workshops they plan to attend at that time.

The agenda for the conference and symposium remain works in progress. The general two-day agendum for the symposium will be adjusted from time to time as scheduling issues are worked out; the specifics of the workshops will be published after the close of the call for papers in April. Please watch this page.
