Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the United Nations rules for the protection of Juveniles deprived of their liberty, which is adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 14 December 1990. It first describes the fundamental perspectives followed by the discussion of the scope and application of the rules. It then talks about the juveniles under arrest or awaiting trail, and the management of juvenile facilities. The rules are intended to establish minimum standards accepted by the United Nations for the protection of juveniles deprived of their liberty in all forms, consistent with human rights and fundamental freedoms, with a view to counteracting the detrimental effects of all types of detention and to fostering integration in society. These are designed to serve as convenient standards of reference and to provide encouragement and guidance to professionals involved in the management of the juvenile justice system.
