The lecture was followed by a lively Q&A session, during which participants asked a variety of questions, including about the age of criminal responsibility. Both UNAFEI and TIJ are members of the United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme Network Institutes (PNI). UNAFEI will continue to collaborate with TIJ and other PNIs to enhance each other's activities.
