Ending child detention

Joint efforts to put an end to child detention...

Child deprivation of liberty is a serious issue that involves restricting a child's freedom.ending child detention

It includes extreme measures like solitary confinement, which isolates children from social interaction. 

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) recognises that there may be exceptional circumstances where deprivation of liberty is considered, but it emphasizes that it should always be a last resort and for a limited period.

At the Global Initiative on Justice With Children, we emphasize the importance of exploring all alternatives before considering deprivation of liberty.

Our commitment stems from the understanding that such measures have a profound and lasting impact on a child's life.
