Kickoff to the Roundtable Discussions on Diversity Measures


Today, the inaugural roundtable discussion dedicated to the development of a comprehensive training module on diversity measures was held in Prishtine.

This roundtable brought together justice professionals, including juvenile prosecutors, judges, probation officers, police officers, lawyers, mediators, and various other experts.

At the core of this endeavor is the mission to empower justice professionals in the effective implementation of the 16 diversity measures for minors, entailed in the Juvenile Justice Code. These measures are pivotal in shaping a fair and equitable juvenile justice system, ensuring that every child, regardless of their circumstances, receives the care and support they rightfully deserve.

To achieve this objective, we are actively engaged in the development of a comprehensive training module dedicated to diversity measures. However, prior to its drafting, four roundtable discussions across four regions of Kosovo will be held. These workshops will serve as platforms for justice professionals to share their insights and perspectives. Their collective expertise will play a pivotal role in shaping the content and structure of the training module.

This activity is a part of the project “Increase access and quality of care and social and educational services for vulnerable girls and boys particularly those in street situations and their families”. The project is financially supported by the European Union in Kosovo in partnership with Unicef Kosovo Programme.
