The PhD course Interviewing child witnesses (6 higher education credits) offers an introduction to child interviewing in forensic settings. The first part of these proceedings focus on different interviewing techniques. The PhD students were asked to choose and study one established legal interrogation technique and explain why (or why not) the technique is suitable for children of different ages. The students were also asked to explain for what purposes the technique is suitable (e.g., for child plaintiffs, witnesses or child suspects). The second part of these proceedings focuses on children in the legal system worldwide. The students were to give an oral presentation and a brief written account of the situation for children (as suspects, as witnesses, and as plaintiffs) in the legal system in their home country.
