About the webinar:          

The webinar presentation will describe briefly the Romanian juvenile justice system focusing more on the diversion.

In the first part, Dr. Ioan Durnescu will present the relevant legislation applicable to juveniles. Then, he will move on to describe the institutional landscape relevant to juveniles in conflict with the law.

The last part of his discussion will make a critical analysis on the Romanian system by comparing and contrasting the Romanian system with the European standards. Some recommendations will be also formulated as a way of concluding.

Webinar in Romanian???

Dears, I am not very clear, if the webinar is in Romanian, why the presentation is in English? It is confusing and rather upsetting. Firstly, because Prof. Durnescu can hold the webinar in English, and secondly because through holding it only in Romanian you are underusing a very good resource and the Romanian experience in the field of juvenile justice will still be known only to Romanians, when Childhub provides these type of opportunities exactly to encourage the spread of knowledge to all countries and professionals, in a commonly understood language.

Dear, Corina, 

Dear, Corina, 

Here you can find the announcement of the webinar in Romanian: 

The webinar is in Romanian because we mostly target Romanian professionals working in the field of juvenile justice in Romania for this particular webinar.

We strongly agree with your point of view and that is exactly the mission that ChildHub has - however some webinars, like this one, is mainly with the purpose of sharing experiences with Romanian professionals and we want to make sure that all of them will be able to fully understand the content of the webinar. 

We will make sure that the following webinars that will be in Romanian will have a live translation.

We hope you will enjoy the webinar. 

Kind regards!
