Strengthening Justice for Children

 

Her Royal Highness Ashi Sonam Dechan Wangchuck graced the opening of the National Stock-taking Consultation on Justice for Children yesterday.

Bhutan National Legal Institute (BNLI) in collaboration with UNICEF organized the consultation workshop to strengthen cooperation among key stakeholders involved in administering justice for children. The need for specialized procedures for children who come in contact with the law that give primary consideration to children’s protection and are consistent with the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other national, regional and international standards, guidelines and rules, are of utmost importance. Strengthening all components of the child protection system, including the justice mechanisms, to operate in the best interest of children is a key priority for UNICEF.

Over 30 participants from the judiciary, The Office of the Attorney General, Royal Bhutan Police HQsNational Commission for Women and Children – NCWC, Bhutan and CSOs working on justice for children participated in the meeting.
