International Juvenile Justice Observatory

International Juvenile Justice ObservatorySince its formation in 2007, Diagrama Foundation has worked towards the comprehensive care of minors and young people, promoting the consolidation of models of educational intervention that, guaranteeing children’s rights, aim to provide means for their re-education and social and labour integration.

Diagrama has worked since its beginnings in educational co-innovation joined by other entities and bodies, carrying out activities, projects and international investigations. As well as participating in numerous initiatives from the European Union and United Nations and establishing permanent lines of communication and cooperation with organisations with similar goals and objectives.

Diagrama Foundation has collaborated with the International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) ever since its creation and continues to do so nowadays, sharing values and goals. Both organisations work to guarantee the rights of minors and young people in social exclusion, especially those in conflict with the law.

The international Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO) was established as a non-profit organisation in Brussels in January 2002 by FundaciĆ³n Diagrama (Spain). Its work focuses on the rights of children and adolescents at risk of social exclusion, especially those in conflict with the law or caught in the cycles of violence and juvenile delinquency.

Established in order to create a space for development, service provision and shared knowledge, the IJJO promotes and encourages the improvement of juvenile justice systems and policies, the implementation of international standards, the strengthening of professional competence in the field, and the exchange of innovative good practices.

Some of the projects referred to in the European Projects section of this website are a collaboration between the IJJO and the Diagrama Foundation.

Diagrama Foundation is a member of the IJJO's European Council for Juvenile Justice and is joined by more than 80 other members from all over Europe.
