United Nations Guidelines on Justice in Matters Involving Child Victims and Witnesses of Crime: Child friendly version

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime created these child-friendly guidelines along with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). They were developed to help make sure that children who have been harmed by crime and children who have seen others harmed are protected and treated fairly when they say what happened to them in a court of law. Meant as guidance for children and child professionals, it explains what should be done and how people should act in situations when children are involved in criminal acts, or are witnesses of crime.
