"It’s for you own good". A century of juvenile justice practices in Belgium (1912-2012), Bruxelles
4 juin 2012
A century ago a separate juvenile justice system was introduced in Belgium. Since then minors are brought before the juvenile justice judges and court because of both delinquent and non-delinquent behaviour. The Belgian juvenile justice system is known in Europe for its welfare model character. One of the key features of this system is the best interest of the child, legitimating pervasive interventions, once famously described as a police des familles.
This international seminar (organised by VUB, ULB, UCL) titled “It’s for your own good : A century of juvenile justice practices in Belgium (1912-2012)” launches the three seminars we organise at the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 (see below). A lot of historical, social and criminological research has been done on the Belgian juvenile justice system, its principal actors and the practices they developed during the past hundred years. After a century of juvenile justice practices, it is necessary to bring together this research, confront insights from different perspectives, and come to a state of affairs on the Belgian juvenile justice. We will do so in the coming three seminars. A call for papers is launched. As a fi nal result we plan a joint publication in 2013.
A la Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Boulevard de la plaine 2 à 1050 Bruxelles.
Le 4 juin de 9 à 18h.
