Interagency review of justice for children in a humanitarian context (CPMS 14)

This report suggests that the number of child-victims and the number of children in conflict with the law rise significantly during all types of emergencies. According to practitioners, conflict and civil unrest negatively impact justice for children more than natural disasters.

In order both to improve child-friendly interventions for boys and girls who come in contact with the justice system in emergency settings and to increase awareness of the child protection minimum standard on justice for children, specific guidance and tools should be developed for humanitarian practitioners and capacity developed around Standard 14 to make it more applicable in the field.
