Achieving Child Friendly Justice in Africa

‘Justice for children’ refers to all situations where children are involved in either criminal or civil justice systems. This includes administrative and informal justice mechanisms. Child-friendly justice describes justice systems that are designed or adapted to be sensitive to issues faced by children when they come in contact with law and courts for any reason. 

This study explores situations where children come into contact with justice systems. It provides an international and regional overview of relevant instruments that provide a basis for child-friendly justice in Africa.
