The project Children's Rights Behind Bars benefits from the knowledge and expertise of 11 European public figures specialized in the fields of child rights, monitoring, deprivation of liberty of children and juvenile justice. This project is implemented in collaboration with 16 European and International organizations that work towards children's rights. The main objective of this joint effort is to improve respect for the rights of children deprived of their liberty and to improve the monitoring of places where children are deprived of their liberty in order to ensure that their rights, needs and dignity are respected as well as guaranteeing the protection of their fundamental rights. 

These individual and group stakeholders are presented in greater detail in the tabs "Experts" and "Partners".
