The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international household survey programme to collect internationally comparable data on a wide range of indicators on the situation of children and women. MICS surveys measure key indicators that allow countries to generate data for use in policies and programmes, and to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments.
For more information on indicators and the analysis conducted in the full final report please go to mics.unicef.org and

Rights of juveniles in conflict with the law
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.
