Sixth Annual Conference on the Future of Adversarial and Inquisitorial Systems

JUVENILE CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND HUMAN RIGHTS: COMPARATIVE AND INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES

11-12 April, 2014
(Pre-Conference for Young Scholars, 10 April 2014)
University of North Carolina School of Law, Chapel Hill, N.C., U.S.A.

Scholars from North America and the European Union will meet to explore juvenile justice in a comparative context in UNC’s sixth annual conference on the future of adversarial systems. The mounting crime control preoccupations of criminal justice leave little room for more nuanced understandings of children and young people, who are increasingly demonized as amoral and anti-social or portrayed as victims of abuse.

“Juvenile Criminal Justice and Human Rights” and the preconference for young scholars will address two different aspects of the changing face of juvenile justice: the main conference will address juvenile justice from a comparative point of view, while the preconference will address juvenile justice in transnational and international law.

Registration is now open. Space is limited. Questions? Contact Lance Westerlund, lancew@unc.edu, 919.962.1679. CLE credit pending.

We hope to see you in April.
