United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Administration of Juvenile Justice ("The Beijing Rules")

On 29 November 1985, the United Nations General Assembly passed A/RES/40/33, the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Administration of Juvenile Justice ("The Beijing Rules").  The Beijing Rules affirm member States' commitments to "endeavour to develop conditions that will ensure for the juvenile a meaningful life in the community, which, during that period in life when she or he is most susceptible to deviant behaviour, will foster a process of personal development and education that is as free from crime and delinquency as possible."
