CHILDfront – Child friendly justice in the Greek and Cypriot courts

GA: 101046589 – CHILD front – JUST-2021-JTRA

The CHILD front project aims to promote the effective and coherent implementation of European policy and legislation on child-friendly justice. The project focuses on Greece and Cyprus, the two Member States with the lowest scores in the European Union (2020 Justice Scoreboard) in terms of child-friendly justice.

The sub-objectives of the project include:

Development of a database on the training needs of judges and prosecutors in Greece and Cyprus, including non-legal skills necessary for child-friendly justice,
Development of training materials and tools for child-friendly justice based on good practices and international standards,
Providing high quality multidisciplinary training to 235 judges and prosecutors,
Creation of an e-learning platform to be used both during the project and in future training activities organised by the judicial support schools,
Training of trainers, who will act as a focal point for trainings on child-friendly justice within the judicial support schools and multiply the impact of the action through the systematic transfer of their knowledge.


To ensure a multidisciplinary approach, the project is being implemented by a consortium that includes specialists from the fields of judicial education, child psychology and child rights.
