During a conference in Brussels on 26 November 2018, director Raoul Nolen presented the Youthlab of Young in Prison. Because the youth of the Youthlab themselves would do a much better job in this, YiP recorded a video with Bruce. He explained to an audience of researchers, policy makers and international organisations why the Youthlab and listening to youth truly matters.
The conference ‘Children’s Rights Behind Bars 2.0 - A participatory path toward reintegration of children in conflict with the law’ was an initiative of Defence for Children - Belgium.
Bruce of the Youthlab is joined by Susanne van Dongen in the video. Susanne is assistant prosecutor and was trained by Bruce previously. She explains what it meant for her to ‘get under the skin of someone else’ during a Youthlab session. Since 2018 all youth prosecutors in the Netherlands receive a training of the Youthlab.
