Child-friendly Justice assesses how the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has affected the development of child law and the promotion of children’s rights in the past twenty-five years. Its 24 studies probe a broad variety of issues relating to children’ contact with civil, administrative and criminal justice systems, the protection of child integrity and their right to participation, information and proper representation.

The contributors – all experts on child-related matters – represent international organisations, academia and NGOs. They provide a clear picture of the origins of the current problems in realising child-friendly justice, and they discuss possible solutions.
