Reporton the expert roundtable on Juvenile justice

The government of Uganda has made significant commitments at regional and international level including ratifying the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, which legally oblige the state to protect the rights of all children including those in conflict with the law. At the national level, there are laws, policies, standards and guidelines that form a broad framework regarding the administration of Juvenile Justice in Uganda. Despite the above developments, there are concerns that the laws and policies in place have not been translated into effective protection of children who are in conflict with the law.
