child friendly justice guidelines were adopted by the Committee of
Ministers of the Council of Europe on 17 November 2010.
The guidelines aim to ensure that, in any such proceedings, all rights of
children, among which the right to information, to representation, to
participation and to protection, are fully respected with due consideration
to the childís level of maturity and understanding as well as to the
circumstances of the case. Respecting childrenís rights should not
jeopardise the rights of other parties involved.
