Toolkit on Diversion and Alternatives to Detention

Areas of special interest

The following topics require particular consideration in relation to diversion and alternatives.

• Conflict & post-conflict situations
• Over-represented groups (e.g. ethnic minorities)
• Substance abuse
• Disability & mental illness
• Children in street situations
• Gangs
• Girls / gender

It is beyond the scope of the current toolkit to examine these issues in detail. However, some documents are available which respond to these issues in the 'Resources / By theme' section of the toolkit.
