In the framework of the Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty (GSCDL), DCI (as co-convener of the NGO Panel on GSCDL) will be organizing an expert level meeting together with the Independent Expert and with the support of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). The event will take place on 08 March 2018 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva (Switzerland), to present the Study questionnaire and provide a corresponding space for discussion.
The questionnaire has been formally distributed and is now available online. Aimed for collecting and providing quantitative statistical data about the number of children deprived of liberty, the questionnaire represents a tool for States and other key stakeholders to provide examples of best practices and innovative alternative approaches aimed at upholding children’s rights and ultimately reducing the number of children deprived of liberty.
