Guide on child rights
The Guide on Child Rights is a publication for children to become acquainted with their rights and the ways to exercise and protect them. It is also aimed at adults - parents, carers, teachers, doctors, social workers, judges - as a reminder of the responsability that they have for assuring that all choices made are truly in the best interest of the child.
Rights of juveniles in conflict with the law
Victim-offender mediation for juveniles in conflict with the law supports the healing process of victims by providing a safe, controlled setting for them to meet and speak with offenders. Moreover, it allows offenders to learn about the impact of their crimes on the victims and take direct responsibility for their behaviour. Finally, victim-offender mediation provides an opportunity for the victim and offender to develop a mutually acceptable plan that addresses the harm caused by the crime.
UNICEF supported the introduction of mediation into the juvenile justice system of Montenegro. As a result, 38 professionals from different occupations became mediators for juveniles in conflict with the law certified by the Ministry of Justice.
Two publications - Rights of Children in Conflict with the Law and Attendance Order Implementation Rules - were printed in autumn 2007 in order for the mediators and juveniles to become acquainted with their rights and benefits of mediation.
