Global Study Launch in the Netherlands

Defence for Children International hosted the launch of the Global Study in the Netherlands where parliamentarians were invited. Manfred Nowak and Manu Krishan from the GCHR presented the Global Study as well as the follow-up initiatives that have taken place in other countries. Ton Liefaard and Eva Huls followed these presentations focusing on the challenges for children deprived of liberty in the Dutch context and how to implement recommendations. Notably, this event also involved young experts, who shared their personal experiences with deprivation of liberty and presented their perspective to parliamentary officials. As part of the follow-up initiative suggested by Manu Krishan, the experts involved identified specific action points with the aim of setting up concrete next steps to collectively work on a strategy to implement the rights of children deprived of liberty in the Dutch context.
