Juvenile Justice System in India: From Welfare to Rights

Author : Kumari, Ved
pages: 440
Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Oxford University Press
Published : 2009

Revised, with additional material, this pioneering work updates readers about the latest developments in juvenile justice system in India. The data on children continues to be conspicuous by its absence and the rights approach diluted by welfare perspectives. Analyses of the cases from the higher courts bring out some protective approaches but more often the decisions do not reflect quality representation and serious research. Lack of coordination between various juvenile justice agencies renders the whole system less effective. The amendments in the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 and the Model Rules 2006 have brought clarity to many contentious issues but they can be effective only if they are implemented by the courts and enforcement agencies. Looking at these and other factors, Kumari s painstaking research and penetrating analysis strongly advocates increased adoption of rights based and holistic approach to juvenile justice. This book will be invaluable for child welfare agencies, policymakers, lawyers, police officials, members of the judiciary, NGOs working with juveniles, and educationists.
