Prevention of juvenile delinquency

     IRC site

Article 40 of the CRC accords protection to children in conflict with the law. The international community has also recognized the need to develop national, regional and international approaches and strategies to prevent children coming into conflict with the law. See in this regard General Assembly resolution 40/35, entitled Development of Standards for the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency (1985), and the United Nations Guidelines for the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency, otherwise known as the Riyadh Guidelines (1990).
