New Beneficiary: Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel


The Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel (IJJP), aims to coordinate among international organizations engaged with national authorities in juvenile justice reform.

Established by a 1997 Resolution of the Economic and Social Council, the Interagency Juvenile Justice Panel (IJJP), aims to coordinate among international organizations engaged with national authorities in juvenile justice reform. The work of the Panel is guided by the relevant provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and existing international standards on the administration of juvenile justice.

The objective of this body is to enhance country and global coordination in juvenile justice by:
  1. Identifying panel member organisations working at country level and their activities
  2. Encouraging our respective field offices to work together towards a common approach at country level
  3. Promoting on-going dialogue with national partners in juvenile justice reform
  4. Identifying, developing and disseminating common tools and good practices
  5. Bringing protection of the rights of children in conflict with the law onto the agenda of the international community
The Juvenile Justice Panel currently consists of the following UN agencies and NGOs, listed alphabetically: Defence for Children International (DCI); Organisation Mondiale Contre La Torture (OMCT); Penal Reform International (PRI); Save the Children UK; Terre des Hommes Foundation; UN Committee on the Rights of the Child; UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC); (UN) Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO); United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); (UN) Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR); United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
