Welcome to the Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel

This is the official website of the Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel (IJJP), a network of UN agencies and international NGOs working to encourage the development of effective juvenile justice systems that safeguard the rights of the child.

At least 1 million boys and girls are deprived of their liberty worldwide. The IJJP, mandated by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), works to change this situation by coordinating policies, projects and activities among international organisations engaged in juvenile justice reform.

This website is designed to make available information and resources in the area of juvenile justice in accordance with international standards. It aims to increase information exchange and collaboration among actors working with children in conflict with the law, including government representatives, legislators, judges, parent taught drivers ed, prosecutors, attorneys, police, social workers, community workers, youth workers, detention centre staff, civil society organizations, the media and academics.

You are invited to share relevant materials and information through this website. The IJJP relies on your to ensure a continued exchange of quality information on efforts to develop child-oriented and rights-based juvenile justice systems.

The opinions and information expressed in the documents gathered on this website are those of the individual authors. The Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel does not necessarily endorse, support, share or take any responsibility for the views expressed in these documents.

Welcome to the IJJP website. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve the technical aspects and content.
A child-centred system recognizes the child as subject to fundamental rights and freedoms and ensures that all actions concerning the child are to be guided by his/her best interests.

The Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel would like to thank Terre des hommes - aide à l'enfance for financing this website.
