Girls in Justice

International Symposium on Girls in Conflict with the Law

GIrls Justice: virtual webinar and Knowledge exchange

The International Symposium on Girls in Conflict with the Law is an innovative digital exchange and virtual webinar that brings experts together at the intersection of juvenile justice and gender-sensitive policy.

Dui Hua joins its partners  Patricia Lee, Managing Attorney of the Juvenile Unit of the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office; the Centre of Comparative and Public Law and the Centre for Criminology of the University of Hong Kong (HKU); and Penal Reform International in proudly presenting the International Symposium on Girls in Conflict with the Law. The symposium follows the success of several related programs undertaken by Dui Hua, including five juvenile justice exchanges with China’s Supreme People’s Court and the 2014 exchange “Women in Prison: An International Symposium on the Bangkok Rules.”

In each webinar you can hear panel discussions, keynote addresses, research presentations, collaborative case studies, and presenters share best practices on specific topics around girls in conflict with the law. Professors, lawyers, journalists, social workers, judges, and activists from the United States, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and China share their expertise and recommendations. Webinar topics include domestic violence/abuse, criminal procedures for girl offenders, restorative justice and diversion practices, sex trafficking of girls, Indigenous girls and youth, best practice in gender sensitive criminal justice, and the psychological and social impact of the criminal justice system on girl offenders worldwide.

We invite you to dive in- attend a webinar, reach out to a panelist, read articles, and get involved
