Workshop with Civil Society Institutions and Organisations in Costa Rica for the presentation of the Integration and Inter-institutional Coordination Protocol
Country or Region: Costa Rica
Topic: Social cohesion
Olicy Areas: Democratic governance policies
The Protocol is part of the technical support that EUROsociAL+ provides to the Costa Rican Judiciary to create a mechanism whereby adolescent convicts serving sentences have access to training and employment opportunities that enable their social insertion for socio-educational, integration and equality purposes, including Juvenile Criminal Justice and Restorative Juvenile Justice. The Costa Rican Judiciary is developing public policies on restorative justice, and in this context, an inter-institutional integration and coordination protocol has been devised. The protocol establishes guidelines for creating a mechanism of articulated institutions for generating training and employment opportunities for people sentenced in the execution phase of juvenile criminal sentences, considering the characteristics and vulnerability of these people. The activity ended with two training and awareness-raising workshops on the Protocol.
The first workshop, on 18 March, was aimed at court officials, with the aim of preparing them for the process of building an inter-institutional mechanism for enabling social insertion of young people in the execution stage of juvenile criminal sentences.
The second workshop (25 March) was designed to encourage community organisations and public institutions to take part in the mechanism.
