The third e-lesson "Individual Assessment of Juvenile Offenders in Croatia- State of the Art, Challenges and Good Practice Examples" provides an overview of the legal framework for individual assessment of juvenile offenders in the Republic of Croatia and the results of research conducted within this project on juvenile delinquency in the Republic of Croatia with experts who use the IA results/reports or carry out the assessment within the justice and social welfare sector.
