Juvenile Justice: Modern concepts of Working with Children in Conflict with the Law

This publication is intended primarily for a field-based practitioner working to improve the system for the administration of juvenile justice in any country. The purpose of the publication is to provide practitioners with concrete guidance on developing effective programmes in the field of juvenile justice. The publication examines and documents models of good practice from Save the Children's expertise in juvenile justice work and includes examples of good practice in juvenile justice work by other agencies. It has been developed for field staff and others (both inside and outside of Save the Children UK) who are interested and involved in juvenile justice work. In order to bring about change to juvenile justice systems, practitioners must first have an understanding of the overall aims and objectives of the juvenile justice system in their country, as well as of the international framework for the administration of juvenile justice.
