Translator Intern / Volunteer - English, French & Spanish
Children and young people all over the world are in need of protection and special care when they come into conflict with the law. This is the inspiration behind the establishment of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory (IJJO), which offers an inter-disciplinary system of information, communication, debates, analysis and proposals concerning different areas relating to the development of juvenile justice worldwide. The IJJO was created in 2002 and obtained the statute of Public Interest Foundation in 2006. Currently, it has consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC). It receives support and sponsorship from a variety of universities, NGOs and government departments, as well as from different international and regional institutions.
